Michael Tobin was speared in 1907 during the main survey of the Canning Stock Route. His grave has a marble cross and clear embossed lettering with all the details of his death. A fence around the grave was rebuilt in 1987.
The site of Well 40 (Nadawulu) is nearby. A track runs to the bottom of the hill to the Well. There is a large lake here and the well itself is underwater on the eastern bank and is not accessible. However it is possible to walk around the banks of the lake to within 4m of Well 40.
