Relevance to Cox’s Road:Evans Crown was named by Evans on December 1st 1813, & sketched by Lewin in 1815
from Cox’s Road 4km south of this location. The first view that Evans had of what he would name the Bathurst
Plains was likely from Mount Tarana about 4km north-west of Evans Crown on the 1st December 1813, although
the text is somewhat ambiguous as to which summit he actually climbed.
