The voyage was designed primarily to conduct magnetic observations in the Southern Hemisphere. The expedition visited or sighted a number of islands including the South Shetland Islands, Prince Edward Islands, Iles Crozet, Iles Kerguelen (where a magnetic observatory was established), Auckland Islands, Campbell Island, Falkland Islands and Tierra del Fuego. A geophysical observatory was established in Hobart with the Governor's (Sir John Franklin) co-operation.
