Collections Taming the Australian Desert

TLF ID M019081

The Western Desert region of Australia has been lived on, charted and cared for by Aboriginal peoples for tens of thousands of years. European settlers, however, saw the same region as something to be conquered or tamed; full of challenges, extreme weather patterns and landscape. See how Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples have approached the geography of this remarkable part of Australia.
