He was the first known European explorer to reach the islands... More > of Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) and New Zealand, and to sight the Fiji islands. His navigator François Visscher, and his merchant Isaack Gilsemans, mapped substantial portions of Australia, New Zealand and some Pacific Islands.

This is scarcely surprising, when we consider how careless Tasman's own countrymen have been of his fame.

Even the date and place of his birth were matter for conjecture .and dispute. Things are somewhat better now.< Less
