The 'Burke and Wills Expedition' was originally called the 'Victorian Exploring Expedition'
and was organised in 1860 by the Royal Society of Victoria in Melbourne.
The Burke and Wills Historical Society Inc was formed in 2005 after a series of conferences in outback Queensland.
The Society has a diverse membership and we welcome members from around Australia and
around the world
who have an interest in Australian exploration history.
Our aim is to encourage interest in, research into and the preservation of anything relating to the
Burke and Wills Expedition and other exploration of Australia and searches for missing explorers.
