No, Mitchell and Campbell Burns were a group of explorers who trekked from Sydney town down through the Canberra region to cross the mighty Molonglo and push southwards towards the plains of the Monaro in about 1834.

They were never seen again and rumour has it they were eaten by a rather hungry group of prehistoric flesh eating kangaroo rats. Or got lost and starved.

I thought Mitchell and Campbell Burns may have been friends of Mully. I was eagerly waiting to read their exploits so I could be suitably outraged.

Thanks for the heads up on Aranda, only got the letterbox warning yesterday.

Lol from the title I thought this was a post on a visiting Scottish folk duo.
