Burke and Wills Dig Tree - Attraction - Queensland

Burke and Wills Dig Tree

Durham Downs, Maranoa Area

The Burke and Wills Dig Tree is one of Australia's National icons and an enduring reminder of the pioneering spirit and extreme harshness of the Outback. Nappa Merrie Station is proud to officially manage the site on behalf of the Royal Historical Society of Queensland. Located on the northern bank of Cooper Creek, the Dig Tree is a Coolibah (Eucalyptus microtha).

In 1898 John Dick carved Burke's face into another tree (the Face Tree) about 30 metres downstream of the Dig Tree. The site is as Burke and Wills and companions would have viewed it nearly 140 years ago. These trees are direct a link to the explorers of Australia's Historic Past.
