The expedition was on the Western Australian coast in 1801 and 1803, making detailed surveys in Geographe Bay, Shark Bay and the Swan River in 1801; and King George Sound, Geographe Bay and along the coast to the Swan River, then mainly along the north-west coast from Shark Bay to Cambridge Gulf, in 1803.
