    Augustus Charles Gregory led an expedition for the New South Wales government in search of Ludwig Leichhardt and his party who disappeared on an expedition in 1848. Gregory's expedition set out from the area near Ipswich in March 1858. They found a tree marked by Leichhardt, but drought conditions forced them to abandon the search and travel to Adelaide.
