    Expedition to S.E. South Australia, April-May 1844 thumbnail image
    Public

    This list links resources relating to Governor Grey's expedition to the south-east of South Australia in April and May 1844. It identifies definitively the purpose of the map (SLSA BRG 42/​119/​8) as being of this expedition - showing the routes taken, localities visited and places named. It also identifies expedition member Thomas Burr (Deputy Surveyor General) as the creator of the map.
    This list includes the map, relevant newspaper articles, Thomas Burr's journal of the expedition, and works by accompanying artist George French Angas. Angas recorded many scenes in sketchbook(s), some dated by himself, and this list also matches these where possible with Burr's chronology. Scenes are dated in yyyy-mm-dd format.

    1844-06-22 Governor Grey's despatch to Lord Stanley identifies Thomas Burr as the author of the expedition map and George French Angas as creator of a sketch of a crater around Mount Gambier or Mount Schank.
    I took with me Mr Bonney (the Commissioner of Public Lands), a gentleman of much enterprise and ability, and who was the original discover of the overland route from Port Phillip to South Australia; and also the Deputy Surveyor General, Mr Burr, with whose knowledge of the bush, and talent for surveying and exploring, I was well acquainted... The accompanying map of the newly-explored country, executed by Mr Deputy Surveyor General Burr contains plans and elevations of two volcanic mountains, which convey a very good idea of the character of these hills; and the enclosed sketch by Mr F. Angas, a young artist who accompanied me, represents very faithfully one of the most remarkable of another species of craters, which are very numerous in this country and which are filled with fresh water, and are almost unfathomable. The water in the one represented in this drawing was 100 feet deep close to the edge of the crater.

    May 5.—[We] arrived at the head station of the Messrs Arthur. There is a well of water, similar to the "Devil's Punch-bowl," close to the station ; and Mr Arthur has put up a windlass, with a rope and bucket, on an overhanging rock, and thus the water required at the station is drawn from the well.

    "Two huts, built of coral limestone and thatched with bark, stood on the margin of another volcanis basin filled with exquisite water; and troughs hewn out of the soft white coral, had been constructed for watering the sheep and cattle, the water for which was raised by means of a pulley from the never-failing reservoir below. This was one of the sheep stations of Messrs. Arthur, who had penetrated into this charming country from the New South Wales side." ("Savage Life", p. 166-67, 5 May 1844).

    "The declining sun threw orange and amber reflections across the sky; and as the light faded away, the steep walls of the crater loomed solemn and terrible, the cold mists of night settled upon the lake and the scene of fairy loveliness was changed to one of lonely grandeur."
