  • ⋅The increasing importance of Sydney must in some measure be attributed to the flourishing condition of the colony itself, to the industry of its farmers, to the successful enterprise of its merchants, and to particular local causes. /Charles Sturt
  • ⋅If we strike a line to the N.W. from Sydney to Wellington Valley, we shall find that little change takes place in the geological features of the country. /Charles Sturt
  • ⋅Yet, upon the whole, the space I traversed is unlikely to become the haunt of civilized man, or will only become so in isolated spots, as a chain of connection to a more fertile country; if such a country exist to the westward. /Charles Sturt
  • ⋅Farming implements are as cheap in Sydney as in England. /Charles Sturt
