After leaving the Antarctic waters HMS Challenger headed to Australia. First reaching Melbourne and then Sydney, the crew decided to stop off at Port Jackson (also called Sydney Harbour) from April to June 1874. Leaving Australia, the boat then headed towards New Zealand, Tonga (then Tongatabu) and onwards to Fiji. The ship stayed in the vicinity of Fiji for 18 days, where the crew explored the land and the shallow waters of the islands.
