Abstract

Englishman Sir Charles Maurice Yonge (1899-1986), a marine zoologist, travelled to Australia with his wife, Martha Jane, and eight other researchers and reached Brisbane in July 1928. Joined by researchers from Australia the expeditionary party studied the biology, meteorology and geography of the Great Barrier Reef. The party used Low Isles off Port Douglas, Northern Queensland as their land base and made forays over the reef by boat.
