Scarce map showing the tracks of Governor Grey in 1844 to the south-east where previously only overlanders with their herds passed through. Grey and his party travelled along the Coorong and reached Cape Bernouilli (now Cape Jaffa) on 28 April. A number of lakes were discovered and at Rivoli Bay a camp was established while several men were left to make a chart of the Bay. Grey proceeded inland to Mount Schank and Mount Gambier.
