Eyre is remembered as an intrepid explorer of the Australian interior, revealing vast grazing lands in New South Wales and overlanding parched country in the new colony of South Australia. Eyre departed Australia in 1844, and after a period as Lieutenant Governor of New Zealand he accepted the position of Governor of Jamaica in 1861.
