John Oxley

John Oxley (1783 - May 26, 1828) was an early Australian explorer. His explorations were written up as Journals of Two Expeditions into the Interior of New South Wales, undertaken by order of the British government in the years 1817-18.

The Oxley Highway in New South Wales is named after John Oxley.

He explored, and recommended to Governor Brisbane, the site for the convict settlement on Moreton Bay which has since developed into the city of Brisbane.
