Burke Robert OHara

Burke, Robert O'Hara, was born at St. Cleram, in Ireland, in 1812. Settling in Australia, he became one of the most active explorers of the interior of that continent. Along with Wills he succeeded in crossing from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria in 1860, but they both perished next year on the return journey, after terrible sufferings from privation and drought.
