Product Overview

Edward John Eyre (1815-1901) was an English land explorer of the Australian continent and a controversial Governor of Jamaica. He gained experience in the new land by boarding with and forming friendships with prominent gentlemen and became a flock owner when he bought 400 lambs a month before his 18th birthday. When South Australia was founded, Eyre brought 1000 sheep and 600 cattle overland from Monaro, New South Wales to Adelaide and sold them for a large profit. He also discovered Lake Eyre. With this money, Eyre set out to explore the interior of South Australia, with two separate expeditions north to the Flinders Ranges and west to beyond Ceduna. He later served as Lieutenant-Governor of New Munster province in New Zealand (from 1848 under Sir George Grey) and later Governor of several Caribbean island colonies.
