Written by Arthur Bicknell and published in 1895, the book describes the time he spent in Northern Queensland during the early 1890s. He was 'persuaded by friends who are better acquainted with the literary world than [him]self to write an account of [his] travels in a country so little known to the ordinary traveller as Northern Queensland'.

The book covers the journey to Australia via Java and the Torres Strait. He describes his travels and adventures through much of north Queensland – Port Douglas Range, Herberton, Mount Albion, the Einasleigh River, the Etheridge goldfield, Castletown, Curham, Gilbert River, Port Douglas, the Sandy and Rocky Tate Rivers, and Charters Towers.

'CASTLETOWN is a small mining camp standing at an elevation of 700 feet above the sea level; there are about a dozen houses, a pub, and, of, course, a Chinaman's garden ... Unfortunately gold mining in this district is not very successful; free gold is found near the surface in what is termed ' brown stone,' but when a depth of 100 feet is reached the ore becomes heavily charged with pyrites, and is most refractory and difficult to treat, and at a depth of about 200 feet the lodes seem to cut out.
