Description:

The earliest colonial view of the Canberra area. The lake had been discovered by Joseph Wild (1773?-1847), a bushman and constable, who had been sentenced in 1793 to transportation for life. In 1814 he began working for Charles Throsby and accompanied Throsby on his expeditions to the country west of Sutton Forest in 1817, to Jervis Bay in 1818, and to Bathurst in 1819. In August, 1820, Throsby sent Wild and two men from a road party to search for the lake. On the 19th August Wild reached the lake at its northern end.
