Best Answer

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.
