Tasman sailed two ships the Heemskerck and Zeehaen   heading south  and east searching for the  southern land . Bad weather and the cold forced him further north where he found land at a place he called Van Dieman's Land, now Tasmania. Tasman landed in Frederick Henry Bay where they collected wood and water. They heard voices in the forest but they did not see any aboriginal people. 4/2/2014 Rocco Hamadi 3
