Significant Individuals: Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson
Step back in time to 1813 and follow the journey of Gregory Blaxland, William Charles Wentworth and William Lawson as they make their way over the Blue Mountains to find out what was on the other side. Motivated by thoughts of adventure and determined to find more grazing land to the west, Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson entered the history books when they headed up the mountains, taking almost the exact same path as the Great Western Highway does today.
In this virtual excursion, students will engage with original primary source material from the State Library collection and uncover how these three explorers contributed to the development of Australia and why their adventure is still significant today.
