The non-linear realisation based on $A_1^{+++}$ is known to describe gravity in terms of both the graviton and the dual graviton. We extend this analysis at the linearised level to find the equations of motion for the first higher dual description of gravity that it contains. We also give a systematic method for finding the additional fields beyond those in the non-linear realisation that are required to construct actions for all of the possible dual descriptions of gravity in the non-linear realisation. We show that these additional fields are closely correlated with the second fundamental representation of $A_1^{+++}\,$.
