Mr Cunningham explores near Glenroy

14th October 1825

Around this day, 14th October 1825, Allan Cunningham rested his horses at Glenroy, north-west of Bathurst, where there was an abundance of grass. They had “fared badly in respect to green feed on the mountains”. ((Source: Robert Heward’s Biographical Sketch of Allan Cunningham)) Glenroy was a favourite camping ground for the Botanist. He visited Glenroy several times in the past.

The Allan Cunningham Research Team visited Glenroy in 2006, read how they attempted to walk in the footsteps of Allan Cunningham in an article written by the team.
