‘The sky is brass and the scrub-lands glare,
Death and ruin are everywhere;
Thrown high to bleach, or deep in the mud
The bones lie buried by last year’s flood,
And the Demons dance from the Never Never
To laugh at the rise of the Darling River.’

The Song of the Darling

Henry Lawson

BOURKE. This township, nearly in the centre of the Australian continent on the river Darling, 576 miles from Sydney, is not unlikely ‘to become a place of great importance at no distant period. It will be connected commercially with Queensland, South Australia, and the Gulf of Carpentaria.                                                    Source: Extract from Samson PO Directory 1867.
