Two Surveying Reports Released

We have today posted two surveying reports by the University’s Emeritus Professor John Fryer on our Coal River Working Party and Aboriginal Sourcebook sites. Both reports pinpoint important locations in the region’s history including the site of Threlkeld’s mission house at Belmont and the location of Barrallier’s camp site during the early survey mission in 1801.
