He set out for Australia in 1844 and worked with his uncle, Captain R. G. Moffatt, a former magistrate and commander of the military police in Port Stephens who by that time had turned his attention to agriculture and sheep farming. He later moved north and became a squatter, establishing a station called "Callandoon" on the Darling Downs. He sold the station in 1849 and moved to the town of Drayton.
