Here is a small selection of some of Bill's fieldwork sketches made in northern Queensland along Leichhardt's route. Various campsites were found and some sketches made. Many of Leichhardt's campsite areas could still be located, from his remarkable journal, and much of the scenery is little-changed from 1844-45. 

We hope to bring you information on obtaining prints in the near future. Click on the thumbnails below to see a larger image. To protect Bill's work, the large images carry a watermark.
