1798

On 22 March, John Wilson and scribe John Price reached the vicinity of Marulan (Moorooaulin).  The next day (23 March) they travelled to present day Mt Towrang (vicinity of Towrang stockade) from where they looked out over the Mulwaree (Goulburn) Plains.  They described the scene: We saw from the mountain a river that seemed to run a way westward. Steered our course north to get to it, we found it to be about the size of the Nepean River with a great run of water . . .   To the southward it runs to a [sic] open country a great distance, the tops of the Hills looks to be very thin of timber.
