    A painting by Peter Hudson titled 'Noah's Beach near Cape Tribulation' by Peter Hudson. It depicts a mangrove at Noah's Beach with the thick and lush rain forest vegetation and the wet land.

    HMD ENDEAVOUR struck the reef not far from this place where the wild tropical Daintree rainforest comes down to meet the sea.

    SignificanceThis painting by Peter Hudson is significant in providing an alternate view of first contact and European occupation of Australia.
    HistoryThis work by Peter Hudson was produced for East Coast Encounter, a multi-arts initiative involving Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, writers and songwriters to re-imagine the encounter by Lieutenant James Cook and his crew with Indigenous people in 1770.
    Peter Hudson was the initiator of the East Coast Encounter concept and was a passionate advocate for the project.

    Cook's voyage along the Australian east coast has become central to national historical narratives. The East Coast Encounter project asked artists to re-envisage this seminal journey by imaginatively exploring moments of contact between two world views during these encounters. It also brought these events into the present by incorporating artists' reflections on their relevance today, and their responses to visits to significant contact locations. Topics such as encounter, impact, differing perspectives, nature and culture and views of country are investigated.
