In 1836 R.C. Gunn sailed in the Sloop Rebecca from Launceston to Port Phillip, Western Port Bay and Port Fairy. He was on the way to his new residence at Circular Head, Tasmania, but used the opportunity to look for grazing land on the mainland. He reports his observations during the cruise. The text is illustrated by newly available portraits of Gunn and his wife.
