Project: Explorers of Australia

Categories: Explorers of Australia Project

The Explorers of Australia Project is a Sub-Project of the Australia Project.

Welcome to the Explorers of Australia Project!


In the early days of white settlement, Australia was an unimaginably vast and impenetrable continent. This project is for anyone who has an interest in the brave explorers who faced many dangers to map the unknown and open up the country.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please do the following:

  1. Add the line [[Category:Explorers of Australia Project]] to the text area of your profile page. This will add you to the list of participants on the category page.
  2. Add explorers_of_australia to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  3. Ask Paul , Terry or Irene to award you the Australia Project member badge.
  4. Add your name to the list below, along with a note about what you're working on in this project right now.

Our Progress

  • Irene Dillon - I have no explorer ancestors but once owned a house built by an early explorer, so I feel a personal interest.
  • Terry Wright - No Explorers in my family but i have a great intrest in anything Australian and am looking forward to learning about the Australian Exploeres and their lives.
  • Susan Scarcella -My ancestor, James Schofield, was first assigned to John Oxley, then to Archibald Bell, surveyor of the second line of road across the Blue Mountains. Bell and he became great friends. He married at Bell's house, St Aubins (out of Scone NSW) with Bell as witness.
