An Irishman, an Englishman and a horse go on an epic journey through Australia…
Sound like a joke?
Well Burke and Wills’ expedition from bottom to top largely was.
It’s been 150 years since the famous adventure to The Gulf of Carpentaria and to celebrate Charlie Ranger and Nicholas Waxman are bringing A Sunburnt History to the Comedy Festival, a show exploring what really happened at such a defining moment in our country’s history.
1360 kilograms of sugar, a Chinese gong, the stationary cabinet and a cartload of shonky planning, that’s just the packing!
If you’re someone who loves a good historical gaffe then join us on our own journey destined to match that of a pair of famous Australian explorers.
Just don’t pack any sugar.
