John McDouall Stuart made seven major expeditions.
Stuart first explored when he was employed as a draughtsman by Captain Charles Sturt on an expedition into the desert interior. Following his experience with Sturt, Stuart led six expeditions west and north of Lake Eyre. On each one, he made it a little further north until he finally broke through to the north coast.
