Relatively uncharted, except for the aboriginal people who moseyed the land, Corner Country in the 1800’s included the areas explored by a duo of ambitious adventurers who themselves and their men set out to discover the Australian continent, from its South to its North. Prior, such an expedition was out of the norm and the men voyage continues to be of intrigue. Robert O’Hara Burke and William John Wills were at the helm of this excursion. It is referred to as “Burke and Wills expedition”. “European exploration of Australia” comprises a group of seafarers and land explorers, including Willem Janszoon, James Cook, and Charles Sturt.

The Australia Outback Tour will follow sections of where some of these brave men traveled, then divert to integrate some sites of great interests in the journey. Places to see include “Lost City”, the frontier where three states (Queensland, South Australia, and New South Wales) connect in a desert wilderness, and vast open lands that seems to go on forever and is home to copious wildlife that roams free.

The last situate in southern Queensland before entering the more populated east coast, St. George allow travelers to delve in a sparsely tenanted area and has outback. Straddling the banks of the Balonne River is the Western Downs town of St. George. The region is rich in history (which will be, in part, some highlights of the tour) and is the site where explorer Sir Thomas Mitchell on St. George’s Day (April 23, 1846), discovers the river crossing; hence the town’s name. A monument dedicated to Mitchell is established locally.
