A view George Street, Sydney's original high street, thus probably Australia's first street. In the centre is Bungaree (c.1775-1830), a leader of the Kuringgai people of the Broken Bay, dressed in flamboyant European military dress. A valuable mediator between the locals and the Europeans, he joined Flinders on his circumnavigation of Australia (1801-3), helping smooth interactions with the various peoples the expedition encountered. He died shortly after D'Urville's visit; obituaries were published in the Sydney Gazette and The Australian. From 'Voyage de la Corvette l'Astrolabe', the account of Jules Dumont D'Urville's important expedition to the South Seas between 1826 and 1829.
