Path to Jervis' Bay Discovered

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser

15 December 1821

Another valuable discovery has just taken place. Charles Throsby, Esq. to whom the Colony is already infinitely indebted, in company with Mr. Wm. Kearns, has been on discovery to Jervis' Bay.

They set out on the arduous expedition the 23d ult. and returned on the 6th instant.

Mr. Throsby proceeded direct from Sydney through the County of Argyle, passing his own farm.

He is decidedly of opinion that a good road may be cut from Sydney to that harbour; and he moreover reports the land to be extremely rich and promising; and that all the lagoons and rivers, at this season of the year, are fordable.
