That central ground between the Mooni and the Barwan, had brigalow growing upon it, was firm, and in some hollows we found water.
Leaving a little hill of trap to the left, and some brigalow scrub on the right, we reached the old ground and encamped.
The river there ran in four separate channels, amongst various trees; brigalow and yarra being both amongst them.
I met with no better success on turning to the left, and encamped amongst the brigalow, where I found some grass.
It was still, however, enveloped in a narrow belt of brigalow.
The river had a singular tendency to spread into little channels within a belt of brigalow scrub.
All these we successfully avoided, passing over fine open forest land, and encountering no brigalow.
Then scrubs of brigalow obliged us to travel in the river bed, as the only open part where we could pass.
The hollows resembled those of brigalow scrub, and we soon found this tree in full possession of them.
Still it spread into many channels and isolated ponds; the latter being sometimes in good grassy land, apart from the brigalow.
