He was influenced by the famous voyage of de Quiros, the Portuguese navigator who believed he had reached Terra Australis, the great southland. The expedition had dual goals: to chart a new course to the Pacific, and to find the great southern continent.

He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. Cadell's report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was criticised at the time. Thus, the Napier 'Notes' are the only public account of the expedition, and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. Compiled from the Napier journal by his family, and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, are by a brother of Napier, and are signed 'JMN'. (Ferguson 13058. Scarce. Small bookshop stickers: A. H. Spencer Hill of Content, Berkelouw Bookdealers.
