Artist's Description

This rock cairn stands on Mt. Poole, named in honour of explorer Charles Sturt`s second in command, John Poole. In 1845 Sturt was forced to camp for six months at nearby Depot Glen as it was a source of permanent water in an otherwise drough ravished land. To give his men something to do, he encouraged them to build this cairn. Little did they realise that they were building a monument to John Poole who later died here. Interesting for me is that he died 100 years to the day before I was born.
