Information

Between 1849 to 1857, large numbers of Bullock and Mule teams travelled between Burra and Port Wakefield, carting copper ore from the Burra Copper Works to the Gulf Port and returned with coal and other supplies.

This spot was known as the Devils Garden, a treacherous bog during winter, surrounded by sandhills, which were difficult to cross during the hot summer months.

A corduroy road of native pine poles cut from the nearby scrub was laid over the area, and the remains of this road are buried beneath the sand areas.
