Lennie Gwyther: A 9-year-old Who Journeyed Solo Across Australia

On February 3, 1932, nine-year-old Lennie Gwyther packed his bags and left for Sydney. He was going to attend the opening of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which was at that time a marvel of engineering. Accompanying him on this journey was his horse Ginger Mick, who was also nine years old. What made this trip legendary, apart from the fact that Lennie Gwyther was such a young boy, was the distance—Sydney was 900 km away, and Lennie Gwyther was travelling alone.
