CAPTAIN CURRIE'S EXPLORATION

Isabella's Plain, present day Tuggeranong was first discovered by Europeans in 1823 when Captain Currie and Major Ovens came to the area in 1823 shortly before the first settlers of the Limestone Plains. This clipping from The Canberra Times dated 12 June 1953 by W.P Bluett discusses that exploration.


Note that in 1953 the Canberra suburbs of Tuggeranong did not exist and that today it should be said that Captain Currie explored a part of present day Canberra.
