A plaque marks the gravesite of John Gilbert (1812-1845), an ornithologist who was Gould`s principal collector in Australia and was a talented observer who endured considerable hardship while travelling in the Australian bush collecting for his employer.
Gilbert was killed by an Aboriginal spear in the neck while travelling on Ludwig Leichhardt`s overland expedition to Port Essington.
