John Horrocks: a man of substance

Presented by Rod Shearing

John Horrocks 1818-1846 appears in the South Australian pantheon of European exploration as a minor figure, but was he? Led on an odyssey by his privileged father to the Hapsburg Court, why did he end up in South Australia, buried at Penwortham?

Rod Shearing is the current, and longest-serving, President of the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia (RGSA). In his role as President of the RGSA he has been active on many fronts and in recognition of this service he has been awarded the Society’s Silver Centenary Medal and a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).
