Leichhardt's Campsite

Ludwig Leichhardt made his way through Warra en route from Moreton Bay to Port Essington in 1844; an epic trek which took more than twelve months to complete.

A poem by Robert Lynd widely published in July 1845 lamenting Leichhardt’s loss, proved to be a premature verse, as the exploration party, on this occasion at least, survived to tell their tale!

A monument has been built in tribute to the Leichhardt expedition, within walking distance of the highway, and located between the Anglican Church and Cooranga Creek.
