Abstract

As a student Leichhardt met Humboldt. Despite of differences between the two geographers, Leichhardt's geographical achievements made him the " Humboldt of Australia ". The paper describes how Humboldt interceded in favour of the young Leichhardt both as a person and as a geographer who was heard of in 1848 when he explored the interior of Australia. - (IH)
