 Bad weather interrupted Hurley's photographic work at Aduru so the Eureka left for Sumogi Island, about 15km downstream in the Fly River estuary.

The Eureka arrived at Samagi village too late in the day for Hurley to take photos, but fine weather greeted him on the following morning and he went ashore with his cameras.
