  • Nineteenth-Century Travel Writing

    Robert Perks Yates’ (1843-1923) tour diary was written in duplicate so he could send an identical copy to his family in England. In the preface, Yates states that his endeavour was to give a faithful and correct account of his travel incidents during his international global tour. Travelling to Australia via India, Yates arrived in Western Australia, having ventured to the country for health reasons. In Australia he described the emigrant possibilities of Victoria and New South Wales. Yates' travels were written in a first person narrative, and although they provided an account of his journeys, he also referenced the manufacturing and commercial interests in the Australian colonies, as well as providing descriptions of the natural, religious and social history of Australia.
