The ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition was the first to cross Australia from south to north. The expedition left Melbourne on 20 August 1860.
Burke and company forged ahead to the northern coast reaching Flinders River on 9 February 1861, whilst the remainder of the party stayed at Coopers Creek. Upon returning and weakened by starvation and exposure, to discover the remaining party had unwillingly abandoned the depot, leaving a message on a tree pointing to a cache of hidden stores.
The Burke and Wills Dig Tree is one of Australia's national icons and an enduring reminder of the pioneering spirit and extreme harshness of the Outback.
