Australia, early 1800s: for more than 165 years the disappearance of the explorer Ludwig Leichardt has remained unsolved. On his second exploration of Australia in April of 1848, in the company of five white men, two Aboriginal guides, seven horses, 20 mules and 50 bullocks, the explorer left the Darling Downs area in southern Queensland bound for Western Australia some 4000 kilometres away across ‘virgin’ deserts; where our people lived. Shortly afterward, the entire party and all stock vanished without trace. From those terrifying harsh times for our own people – the Heart-rock people – the following chronicle reveals the tale of that journey through their ancient eyes.
