Vernon Smith’s diary presents incomplete entries of daily events on a sea voyage to the north of Australia in the lugger VENTURE. Entitled ‘Port Darwin May/July 1905’, it presents the daily experiences Smith had on board the ship as well as the different places he visited during his voyage. He talks of the different animals he encountered as well as the First Nations people he met with throughout his trip. Botanic descriptions of plants were also written. After the VENTURE arrived at Port Darwin after six weeks at sea, Smith boarded the AUSTRALIAN and writes details of his return to Adelaide via Sydney and Melbourne.
