   schema:description "Every Australian has heard of Burke and Wills but few have travelled in their footsteps. In 2008, historian Dave Phoenix decided to walk across Australia from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria, following the track taken by the ill-fated Burke and Wills Expedition. Now you can follow them too. Following Burke and Wills Across Australia guides you on a road trip that follows one of history's great transcontinental journeys, sharing the explorers' experiences on the way. Maps lay out a route that takes you as close as possible to the Expedition's track. As you travel the outback roads, you can learn all the details of the day to day journey of the Expedition from the explorers' own words, and compare what you see with their descriptions of the country in 1860-61. Each chapter provides information about what to see now: the location and descriptions of the markers and memorials placed along the route over the 150 years since the Expedition, and places where you can stand where the explorers stood and look out over prospects they drew and described. The book is a perfect companion for those wanting to see outback Australia, and at the same time understand a journey that has attained mythic status in the history of Australian exploration. Even if you want to follow only part of the track, this is the book for you."@en ;
