Governor Lachlan Macquarie was a major sponsor of exploration throughout the colony of New South Wales. After Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson’s successful crossing of the Blue Mountains, he ordered the establishment of Bathurst, Australia’s first inland city. As the colony opened its horizons, Macquarie toured many of the new settlements with his wife Elizabeth.
