Australian journalist and author Peter FitzSimons will be presenting his latest non-fiction book, ‘Burke and Wills: The triumph and tragedy of Australia’s most famous explorers’ at the Centennial Vineyards Supper Club.

The book explores the story of expedition leader Robert O’Hara Burke and surveyor and meteorologist  William Wills, who – totally lacking in bush survival skills – took 17 other men, 20 tons of equipment, 23 horses and 26 camels with them in to the Australian outback in August 1860.

The event will run from 6:30pm on Tuesday, November 14. Tickets are $50, and include one course and a glass of wine.

They are available from The Bookshop Bowral (4862 1634).
