“These charts are the result of a fourteen-month trip along the Murray in 1973-1974 in a boat much the same size as that used by Captain Sturt in his voyage of discovery.  We weren’t following in his footsteps or trying to re-live the past, but simply fancied the idea of a leisurely trip upstream to discover the Murray for ourselves – a trip that many people plan each year.  Like us, they have found very little in the way of navigation charts to guide them.
The charts are designed for use with a hand-held compass, using compass bearings no more accurate than NNW or sixteen points of the compass.  The names are handwritten to try to preserve the tradition of old river charts.”
