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.
|Additional Information:||This Symposium is a tribute to the botanical work of Dr. Winifred M. Curtis AM, work largely concerned with Tasmanian plants. Scientific and public knowledge of the Tasmania flora has been greatly enhanced by her contributions.
