In the main street there is an upturned boat perched high up on 2 poles. It represents the boat that Charles Sturt carried all the way from Adelaide in 1844 to sail the inland sea when he found it.
Of course he never found the inland sea.
There was one death on that trip, and Charles Pooles grave can be seen down near Milparinka where he was buried.
