Information

The Burke & Wills expedition made their 4th camp here at what was then the township of Lancefield near Deep Creek. The town has since been relocated 2km south. At the time of their stay, the land on which they camped was owned by William Hentry Dunsford. A stone marker with a plaque is found at the site just north of Mustey's Bridge (over Deep Creek) to commemorate their visit on 23 August 1860. This location is just south of the bitumen road called "Burke & Wills Track" that veers NW to Mia Mia.
