Dutch Fur Trade

In 16th- and 17th-century Europe, fur was more than a luxury: as standards of living rose, fur-lined coats, fur collars, fur capes and muffs became near necessities. The beaver was particularly prized because its fur had a special characteristic: under the long glossy coat was another layer of short, tightly-packed hairs. This layer was made into felt, which produced hats of every description and fashion, of great warmth and quality.

Early Dutch Explorers

The first Europeans to visit Australia were not the English navigators but came from Holland. During the 15th. and 16th. centuries it was the Spanish, Portuguese and the Dutch seamen that pushed back the exploration frontiers.After finding South America, it was Magellan who first sailed into the Pacific Ocean, and New Guinea was first sighted by the Portuguese, and as early as 1605, the Dutch vessel Duyfken made the first landfall on the Australian coast.This ship sailing along the south coast of New Guinea and into the Torres Strait turned southwards to sail along the Cape York Peninsula.
