175th Anniversary of Major Thomas Mitchell ExpeditionPrint Page Print this page

The plaque celebrates the 175th anniversary of Major Thomas Mitchell’s third expedition to the Murray River.

Major Mitchell’s third expedition proved the Murray and Darling Rivers were connected. It also allowed him to find what he called ‘Australia Felix’ or ‘fortunate Australia’, which refers to the fertile pastures of South Eastern Victoria,” he said. He followed the Lachlan through what is now Condobolin to the Murrumbidgee and then on to the Murray.
