5: The Obsessive Quest
Narrator John Rowe with Christopher Douglas In 1842 Ludwig Leichhardt stepped ashore at Sydney after a four-month voyage from Europe. He was sickly and short-sighted, but he believed destiny had chosen him to make the first crossing of the vast continent of Australia.
He set off with seven largely inexperienced followers on a fearsome journey of some 2,000 miles, which he reckoned would take five months. In the event it took 15 months. Leichhardt was acclaimed a hero and he planned a more ambitious journey deeper into the interior. Early in 1848 he was off again. That final journey was to become one of the unresolved mysteries of exploration. Producer ALAN HAYDOCK
