The First Fleet consisted of about 1,350 people and 11 ships. It landed in Botany Bay on the 18th January 1788. This land was deemed infertile by the colonists and so they chose to move upwards. They would eventually land in Camp Cove on the 26th. However, it is at this point that they were ambushed by the Aboriginal Collective. The First Fleet were defeated in the Battle of Camp Cove. There were no survivors.
