Major L. F. Giblin, D.S.O.. and Mr. A. V. Giblin during
the Christmas holidays of 1920, 1921, and 1922, organised
and led three successive trips into the little-known country
that surrounds Mt. Anne. The parties met with considerable
difficulties, and most of the available time was used up
in the endeavour to reach Mt. Anne, so the opportunities
for an investiqation of geology were few, but these fragmentary notes may be of assistance to future investigators.
The area reviewed in this paper extends from the
vicinity of Fitzgerald on the Russell Falls River on the
north, to the junction of the Huon and Weld rivers, on the
south. These points are approximately the end of cultivation
in this part of Tasmania. The area is bounded on
the west by the Huon River.

In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.|
