Captain Sturt's Exploration Exhibition

At Signal Point Gallery, Goolwa Wharf Precinct

Friday 1 May to Sunday 31 May 2020
10:00am - 4:00pm Save to calendar


Captain Charles Napier Sturt (28 April 1795 - 16 June 1869) was a British explorer of Australia and part of the European exploration of Australia. He led several expeditions into the interior of the continent, starting from both Sydney and later from Adelaide. His expeditions traced several of the westward-flowing rivers, establishing that they all merged into the Murray River.  He was searching to prove his own passionately held belief that there was an ‘inland sea’ at the centre of the continent.
