This paper wonders about Tahiti and sex and Captain Cook and so Australia. Cook filled in the missing edge of Australia. In setting down his navigations of the east coast he sealed up a continent, made of it a container and containable or did he? What spills out of this cartographic performance of a closed field? In what ways is it still ‘open’?

Katrina is a Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the University of Technology, Sydney.
