A Successful Exploration through the interior of Australia, from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Wills has been described as the expedition's 'real hero'. Without his diary we would have almost no contemporary record of this first European crossing of the continent from south to north, when four men died, leaving only one survivor, John King. Carefully edited by his loving father, the diary with its detailed observations reveals much about the country traversed, and about Wills himself.
