Welcome to the Burke & Wills Environment Expedition Visual Journal.
The artwork takes the form of a series of postcards from Ben Beeton highlighting and documenting the people, the land and changes in Australia's environment since the original expedition. These postcards seek to intrigue and encourage students to reflect and examine the history of Australia through deep time.
Journal images are presented in 3 sections:
Section 1: Melbourne to Menindee
Section 2: Menindee to Coopers Creek
Section 3: Coopers Creek to the Gulf of Carpentaria (still in progress, to be completed in 2011)
