a MEMORIAL to John McDouall Stuart, the man credited with ‘linking up Australia’, is to be created in his home town of Dysart.

The famous explorer who is regarded as a hero down under, but who remains relatively unknown in his birthplace, is to be commemorated with a plaque and landscaped park area opposite the building where he was born, marking the 150th anniversary of his great achievement.

Until three years ago it housed a museum on his life and achievements, but it was closed because of lack of visitors.
