The Western Australian Explorers’ Diaries Project, incorporating the Historical Records of Western Australia: The Letters, Reports & Journals of Exploration and Discovery in Australia. “During the years 1836-1845, the settlements of Albany, Perth, Fremantle and York expanded as immigrants arrived in search of new pastures and other resources. The search for resources, the development of roads between remote settlements, and scientific enquiry provided the impetus for further exploration and discovery in Western Australia in that period. One hundred reports of expeditions of exploration in colonial Western Australia have been annotated, summarised and indexed in Western Australian Exploration 1936-1845. The reports are complemented by expert analyses of native plant species, native animal species and the relations between Aboriginal people and the explorers. This volume in the Western Australian Exploration Diaries series is the companion to Western Australian Exploration Volume 1 1826-1835 and Evidences of an Inland Sea.” (from jacket)
