He was quick to adopt the manner and customs of the invaders of his dominions, becoming a favourite of governors from Phillip to Brisbane and later sailed on voyages with the explorers, Matthew Flinders and Philip Parker.

In his book detailing his journey, Flinders described Bungaree as a "worthy and brave fellow" who saved the expedition multiple times.

According to co-chair of the National NAIDOC committee, John Paul Janke, Bungaree was one of the iconic figures of the early colony of Sydney. That’s an extract from my book King Bungaree, written way back in It’s now as scarce as hen’s teeth, but available in many libraries.

In lithography the artist draws directly onto a flat stone using greasy ink or a chalk pencil. Keith Vincent Smith is the author of King Bungaree: A Sydney Aborigine meets the great South Pacific Explorers,published by Kangaroo Press.

'On the. Bungaree was Flamboyant. Bungaree ( ‐ 24 November ) possibly born at Patonga, was of the Garigal Clan and Pittwater People or saltwater people. He was flamboyant, intelligent and shrewd. He was an explorer, a great voyager, a go-between, an esteemed elder of his people, a. Both Flinders and King commended his even disposition and brave conduct.

In he escorted back natives who had come to Sydney from Newcastle, and proved useful in preserving friendly relations with the Aborigines there. Various governors and colonels gave Bungaree discarded uniforms and a cocked hat; in this garb he lived and slept.

Bowen Bungaree (also known as Boin, Bowen Toura (Mosquito) or Black Bowen) sketched the figure of an Aboriginal woman on a page in the explorer's Field Book.

What seems at first glance to be a simple stick figure is stylistically similar to much larger human shapes outlined in Aboriginal rock engravings throughout the Sydney area.

King Bungaree's Pyalla was included among a gift of books presented to the Duke and Duchess of York in for their children from some of the children of South Australia, and therefore was deemed a suitable, contemporary and representative compilation for royal children to read. Dr Keith Vincent Smith has been researching the history of the First Australians around the Sydney Area for many years now.

I bought his first book “King Bungaree” soon after it was published in His writing fired up a spark of interest I had since first hearing the name of Bungaree attached to one of the two Cub Scout Packs that we had then down at 1st Balmoral Sea Scout Group.

My book King Bungaree is long out of print and difficult to obtain. However, I can recommend an excellent new publication, Bungaree’s Mob, a thoroughly researched and accurate page illustrated small book.
