Panoramic view of King George's Sound, part of the Colony of Swan River

Panoramic View of King George's Sound, Part of the Colony of Swan River is a panoramic hand-coloured print published in 1834 by Robert Havell, and originated with sketches made by Robert Dale from the summit of Mount Clarence.  Dale was assigned to the Surveyor-General's department and spent four years in the colony. During the period he was stationed at King George's Sound and was an experienced topographic surveyor and cartographer with military training in field sketching. Dale's sketches are known to be highly accurate and effective representation of the scene.

 

It shows Princess Royal Harbour where the main settlement was established and to the left of that, King George Sound and Oyster Harbour. The cleared area to the left is the present site of the 'Old Farm' Strawberry Hill. The group of soldiers and natives on the right make up a party returning from a kangaroo hunt. Nakinna, chief of the King George Sound tribe, lived most of the time at the settlement, but eventually rejoined his people. He is probably the native shown wearing European clothes. The party of natives in the centre of the panorama are returining from a fishing expedition to the coast.
