Groundspeak Premium Membermtbikeroz visited Grave of explorer William Hovell, Goulburn, NSW
Visited today (Thursday 18 April 2013). Interesting to read his history both here and at other signs and plaques in the Goulburn - Yass region.

My picture shows his headstone (I'm pointing to his name), I have included my GPS in the pic - BECAUSE - whilst his main expedition with Mr. Hume in 1824 - 1826 , from near Gunning to Melbourne area, was done without GPS units, oh how much a gps would have helped, but of course, they didn't exist then. So, I have placed a GPS in the pic to show the old & the new, almost 2 centuries apart!.

Thanks for bringing me here, very historical.
