              Abel Tasman was one of the world's greatest explorers yet very few people realise the full extent of his accomplishments. Best known as the first European explorer to discover Tasmania, New Zealand and Fiji, he also completed the famous Bonaparte map which became the most complet...e map of Australia until 1770. However, few people understand the importance of his main objective: to discover Terra Australis Incognito, The Unknown Southland, that almost every mapmaker believed existed in both the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Tasman sailed further south than any other explorer. He sailed longer than any other captain across the Indian and Southern Oceans at latitudes of 45- 50 S in two ships only 30 metres in length.
