Bendigo Fang

Took a quick run up to Bendigo for a coffee.  On the way back, we stopped in at the Duigan memorial on Burke and Wills Track, between Lancefield and Mia Mia.  There were commemorative events there recently for the 100th anniversary of John Duigan’s flight – the first in an Australian-built and designed aircraft.  Duigan won the Military Cross flying with the Australian Flying Corps in France during WW1.

I don’t think the track has been updated since Burke and Wills passed through in1860.
