A TALK BY DAVID CORKE – TUESDAY 23 AUGUST 2022 -1.00 pm to 3.00 pm

On 23 August 1860, Burke & Wills and their party stayed overnight in Lancefield.

On 23 August 2022, documentarian and historian of this journey, David Corke, will talk about his findings and his book, Exploring Burke and Wills: Enigmas and Curiosities.

This book does not tell the story of the Burke and Wills Expedition; instead, it explores several important issues in the very well-known saga — asking questions and probing some apparent enigmas, curiosities, and misunderstandings that have always been part of that tragedy. This promises to be a fascinating afternoon about a much-discussed historical event, and we are sure Members and Friends will enjoy it.

Cost of the event is $20.00 per person which includes refreshments.

David Corke’s book will be on sale for $35.00.

All enquiries and bookings to Beth Child on 0418 361 478. OR, you can book via Trybooking.
