Information

Murray Rankin’s abandoned trolley. In 1974 Murray Rankin, a New Zealander, and two brothers from England, John and Peter Waterfall, left Wiluna, heading north and pulling trolleys. Near Well 9, John’s trolley collapsed and 18 kilometres north of Well 15, Murray’s trolley gave up the ghost. They had to abandon their walk. The trolley is still there nearly 50 years later.
