Early in 1836 Charles Darwin spent two months in Australia as part of his voyage around the world on the Beagle. During this time he visited the town of Sydney, travelled on horseback across the Blue Mountains to Bathurst, visited Hobart in Tasmania, and called into King George Sound in Western Australia. Darwin met with several of the leading figures of the Australian colonies, including members of the King and Macarthur families in Sydney, and Alfred Stephen and George Frankland in Hobart.
