In 1860, an eccentric Irish police officer named Robert O'Hara Burke set out to Melbourne at the head of the most ambitious expedition of his age. Up until this point Australia had remained a truly dark continent, but times were… changing. On 20 August Burke and his team of eighteen men made a confident start - journeying north towards the Gulf of Carpentaria. Accompanied by William Wills, a shy English scientist, he was prepared to risk everything to cross the continent. Meanwhile, John McDouall Stuart, a dour Scotsman with a fondness for the bottle, was already trekking north from Adelaide. The race was on. 2003.
