Notes

Map of southeastern Australia showing 68 counties in New South Wales extending out from Sydney, towns, lakes, rivers, land routes, annotated by explorer and partially dated, that were taken by significant explorers from Oxley to Stzelecki over the period 1817-1840, and the Australian Agricultural Company's land holdings totalling one million acres. In particular, goldfields are highlighted in yellow and agricultural areas in pink. Note that part of the intersection between River Darling and River Murray (called Ana Brh.) is uncharted and shown by a hypothetical interrupted line. Relief is shown by hachures and spot heights.

"Also are marked the localities where gold has been discovered to the beginning of 1853".
