Outback 2009: Camel train

There are huge numbers of feral camels in central Australia. A current estimate is that there are between half a million and a million of them. They are descendants of the camels imported to Australia and used as the means of transport in the second half of the nineteenth century in this area.

This camel train was photographed just outside Oodnadatta.
