Dig Tree Conservation Launch

Dig Tree Conservation Launch

The Royal Historical Society of Queensland has completed a major conservation project at the Dig Tree Reserve as trustees of the famous Burke and Wills site, and you are invited to celebrate the occasion with us. Join us at 12 noon on Saturday 27 March at the Dig Tree Reserve for the official launch.

The previous evening at 6pm is a ‘Burke and Wills under the stars’ function organised by the Bulloo Shire Council in Thargomindah. It will be at the amphitheatre in Memorial Park.

The Society’s museum storage facility holds a number of fascinating objects…some of which we have no idea what they are! Do you know what the purpose was of any of these mysterious objects? Please email us at info@queenslandhistory.org.au if you do.

Burke and Wills Dig Tree Reserve was upgraded in 2020 with a new path, boardwalk and signage, replicas of all six blazes and remedial works to the bank of Cooper Creek to protect the roots of the heritage-listed trees.
