Survival in the Desert

Share in one of the world’s oldest living cultures as Aboriginal guides tell the stories of how the desert comes alive. Learn how Aboriginal people use the plants and animals of this habitat as a rich supply of food and medicine in daily presentations.

70% of the Australian mainland is desert – which means it is very hot, dry and unpredictable. People have lived in these deserts continuously for tens of thousands of years and it is only two generations ago that desert Aboriginal people were living traditionally from the local plant and animals.

Survival in the Desert is daily at 11am.
