This publication presents a revised English translation of the first volume (Australie) of an account of a voyage around the world undertaken in 1866 by two young French aristocrats.

In Australia they visited Melbourne, Ballarat and Bendigo, and outside Melbourne experienced the life of a squatter at that time. They also visited Hobart, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane before sailing north towards South East Asia.

The separate chapters are preceded by a general introduction written by Marie Ramsland (University of Newcastle), and by introductions to the separate chapters written by the editor, and by Nicola Cousen (Federation University), Steve Mullins (Central Queensland University), Stefan Petrow (University of Tasmania, and John and Marie Ramsland (University of Newcastle).

The text and the introductions provide a vivid picture of the eastern states of Australia as they were in 1866, seen through the eyes of a young French aristocrat
