Captain Sturt’s Exploration Exhibition
Captain Charles Napier Sturt (28 April 1795–16 June 1869) was a British explorer of Australia and part of the European exploration of Australia. He led several expeditions into the interior of the continent, starting from both Sydney and later from Adelaide. His expeditions traced several of the westward-flowing rivers, establishing that they all merged into the Murray River. He was searching to prove his own passionately held belief that there was an ‘inland sea’ at the centre of the continent.
