In 2008 Dave Phoenix, President of the Burke and Wills Historical Society, walked 3,750 kilometres across Australia following Burke and Wills' faded footsteps.
He is now writing a set of Burke & Wills Touring Guides based on his historic trip.
The first book, Following Burke & Wills across Victoria: a touring guide, will be published on 20 November 2011. This touring guidebook has plenty of maps and illustrations, and includes
route details, information about the places where the Expedition camped - both as they were in 1860 and as they are now - extracts from the diaries, information about the explorers, and details about the scientific and environmental observations made on the Victorian leg of the Expedition.
