Lasseter was an explorer who perished when his camels bolted and left him without food or water. He claimed to have found a fabulous reef of gold years before then perished when he returned to look for it. But that's not all of the story. Some claim he was a conman who convinced people to fund his expedition to re-find this gold, then faked his death and took off with the money. In any event, it's part of the Australian folklore and we definitely had to have a look since we were right there anyway! Shaun certainly had fun...
You can see the cave was quite small and shallow.
Dry river beds have a certain beauty.
If it had rained we would have been totally stuck in the mud.
