DESCRIPTION

A small herd of wild camels crosses a vast salt lake in the central desert region of Australia.
The lake is Lake Gairdner, 90,000 square km. in area. Small waterfalls on the lake are too salty to drink.
There is no vegetation to eat, yet camels make crossings of the lake, distances of 40 km or more.
The camels in Australia are dromedaries. They are not native to Australia, being introduced from Pakistan and Afghanistan in the 19th century.
Lake Gairdner is one of the most beautiful salt lakes in Australia.
