Early surveyors didn’t merely draw lines across the country; they mapped landform and vegetation, Aboriginal place-names and sites, homesteads, huts, graves, yards, tracks, fences and telegraph lines. We discuss two remarkable surveys for the Murray River between Wentworth, at the Murray-Darling Junction, and into South Australia, drawing on archival records to complement the archaeology of this iconic landscape. Bookings essential.
