Deliverance – rescue of John Eyre and Wylie
During a 1600 kilometre journey in 1841 across the Nullarbor to King George Sound, explorer John Eyre and his companion Wylie were involved in a desperate struggle for life after the murder of their overseer Baxter. Suffering from starvation and exposure Eyre and Wylie were near death when at Lucky Bay the pair were miraculously rescued by Captain Rossiter , the English master of a French whaling ship named the Mississippi.
Eyre’s description of arrival at the bay is one of sheer elation.
