Burke and Wills Monument

April 3, 2014

I’m just a little bit besotted with the story of  the Burke and Wills expedition Over the years I’ve read everything that I can get my hands on. Lately the explorers have taken my attention once again, as I am thinking about participating in the  Burke and Wills Trek  in 2015.  This trek is a 330k, 12 day team challenge, walking  from The Dig Tree, near Innamincka to Birdsville.

As they have been on my mind, I was surprised to discover this monument to Burke and Wills, only about 25 ks from my house.
