A cameleer leads a camel train along a dirt road in the outback
Cameleer Kurt Posel leads a camel train along a dirt road in the outback. The group is in profile heading towards and just to the side of the camera. In the background is a sparsely shrubbed rocky outcrop and a big, blue sky with clouds in the distance.
This colour image was shot in open country near Simpsons Gap (Rungutjirpa) in the West MacDonnell Ranges, Northern Territory, while filming Australian Wildlife Series: Camel 1975: Although not a biological study of this notable contributor to Australia's history, this film corrects some of the popular misconceptions about the camel and its habitat. In addition to showing camels in their rough and risky Australian environment, the film includes the people who work with camels in the Australian outback
