Notes

Map of south-eastern Australia showing 19 counties in New South Wales extending out from Sydney, towns, lakes, rivers and the Australian Agricultural Company's land holdings totalling one million acres. The map features land routes, annotated by explorer and partially dated, that were taken by significant explorers from Oxley to Stzelecki over the period 1817-1840, and a table headed Travellers of the Interior lists historically significant explorers in date order over the period 1817-1840. Note that uncharted parts of the Rivers Darling and Murray are shown by a hypothetical interrupted line. Relief is shown by hachures and spot heights.

Includes at lower right of map several reference lists: Australian Agricultural Co.s Land -- Counties -- Travellers into the Interior.
