Eyre & Wylie MemorialPrint Page
The Eyre & Wylie memorial is situated on a high point in the Allambie Park Cemetery. The memorial commemorates Eyre's efforts to traverse Australia from East to West with the help of Aboriginal guide, Wylie. The memorial has aesthetic & historic heritage significance. The situation of the memorial is based on the end point of the track that the two overlanders took in 1841 after travelling for six months from the east (from Flowers Bay to Albany).
Edward John Eyre (1815-1901), together with his aboriginal friend Wylie, was the first man to cross southern Australia from east to west, travelling across the Nullarbor Plain from Adelaide to Albany.
