DIG- we Dug sparkling mineral water & ginger, our favourites. Thank you Di & Jack for the fabulous surprise.



Congratulations Phil and Susan!

Congratulations on making it to the historically significant Dig Tree beside Cooper Creek , and on the anniversary of Burke and Wills death in 1861.

A real milestone in terms of distance travelled - almost exactly half way from Melbourne to Karumba.
