Once in a while you surf the net and come across something totally unique and different. So you've landed upon this site. You've had a look around and began to realise that this is different. Something you've probably never considered before. Camel Trekking in the Flinders Ranges.
In ancient times, people moved across this vast continent using song lines and stories to get from place to place.
Nowadays, we use maps from Geoscience which outline the topography and approximate features of the landscape. Using modern technology and Geoscience maps, we are able to know at any stage of traversing the continent, exactly where we are, down to the closest meter.
- A map will not tell you what the scenery will be like.
- A map will not show you the sunrises and sunsets of the Australian Desert.
- A map can give an approximate indication of what wildlife may exist in such locations but without seeing this for yourself, you will never know!
- A map cannot describe the friendships developed by a group traversing the country using a map as the tool of navigation.
- A map will never be able to describe the sense of being a part of something bigger than ourselves as we travel country where no-tourist trail has been set, no road, no wagon, no track, no people!
