Alexander Forrest was an explorer and surveyor of Western

Australia. Like his famous brother John, he explored and charted

unknown regions of the western state.

Travelling with his brother John in 1874, Alexander departed

Geraldton and discovered the Weld River and the pastureland land

around it.

In 1879 Alexander Forrest led an expedition from the DeGrey

River north to Beagle Bay, then headed east inland into the area

which is now known as the Kimberley. On this journey, he discovered

the Fitzroy River.
