Description:

John Lort Stokes 1812 – 1885 explorer and hydrographer. Famous for being the commander of H.M.S Beagle and surveying the Australian coasts. Between the 29th June and 4th August, 1841 retracing Flinders route in more detail. Between July 30th and August 6th Stokes discovered the Albert River and ascended it for a distance of 50 river miles from the mouth in a long boat.

Stokes also visited Sweers Island and on finding the tree blazed by Flinders, he blazed the reverse side.
