Two Historic Gumtrees – Revisited

'Two Historic Gumtrees', Burke and Wills

Two Historic Trees is a transcription of a report commissioned in 1928 to investigate and report on two important trees relevant to the Burke and Wills Expedition of 1860 – 1861.

Confusion existed in many quarters at that time as to which tree was which, also which was the tree that Robert Burke died under, and the tree that became known as the Depot Tree or as we know it today the Dig Tree.

Another factor prompting this report was in which State each tree was located.

Two Historic Trees is a minor document in some ways, however it does show the diligence and effort that people with a passion for Australian history will go to in recording the true details of an event.
