Helo, is there some archeology in Australia, it seems the only continent with no history? No temple or pyramid... I've heard Maori etc were good sailor but there's none ancient building!The name Nullarbor translates as nothing (nullus) tree (arbor). There are, however, more than 100,000 camels roaming around. I've heard stories how Aussie camels are priced items in the Middle East as they are sought for breeding. The official story is that these camels were imported from British India and Afghanistan to use as transport while building the railroads during the 19th century. The railroad workers thought they would eventually die off, but they have flourished in the desert. Australia is the only country in the world with herds of feral camels. Go figure.
It's quite interesting that for a massive region - the size of the UK or Romania - with a permanent population of a few thousand, the Nullarbor Plain is where Deya Dova, one of my favourite Australian musicians, comes from. Check out some of her stuff:
