Abstract

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.
