Stephen KingPrint Page Print this page

A headstone over the grave commemorates Stephen King, who was a member of John McDouall Stuart`s party and in later life a surveyor.

The headstone was erected by the Royal Geographical Society of Australasia (SA Branch) and friends in admiration of his pluck, endurance and loyalty to John McDouall Stuart, as member of party who crossed the Continent when the British flag was raised on the shores of the Indian Ocean on 25 July 1862.
