A naturalist and collector, he came to Australia aboard La Recherche on a voyage to the Pacific with L'Esperance in 1791.

sketcher, naturalist and collector, was born of a middle-class provincial family in Alencon, Normandy on 23 October 1755. In 1791 he renounced his family name, Houtou, and adopted Labillardiere as his sole surname. He studied botany and medicine at Montpellier, completing his studies and graduating as a doctor of medicine in Paris about 1780. After working at the Jardin du Roi with his friend Desfontaines and their patron Le Monnier, Labillardiere was sent to England for two years in 1782 to study the plant collections in Kew Gardens. There he met Sir Joseph Banks. Afterwards he collected in the Alps and the Mediterranean, then made a botanical voyage to the Levant in 1786-88 which resulted in the publication of his Icones Plantarum Syriae Rariorum Discriptionibus et Observationibus Illustratae (Paris 1791-94).

Other new eucalyptus species and a little kangaroo, Thylogale billardierii (the Tasmanian pademelon), were also collected on this first visit to Tasmania.
