The land we travelled through was mostly Indigenous Protected Areas (IPA lands) which require a permit for access.
An Indigenous Protected Area is an area of Indigenous-owned land or sea where traditional owners have entered into an agreement with the Australian Government to promote biodiversity and cultural resource conservation. Indigenous Protected Areas make a significant contribution to Australian biodiversity conservation – making up over a third of Australia’s National Reserve System.
The last day we drove through Glen Aisle Station.
The cattle were all very well in their place but being woken at 11.35 pm by a bellow outside my tent didn’t endear me to them. It was not my imagination as there was clear evidence of cattle just behind my tent the following morning.
We camped at Lake Disappointment a large salt lake named by the explorer Frank Hann in 1897.
We know there are thousands of camels running wild in Central and Western Australia but we only saw a few and they were all at a distance.
I did not expect to see so many wild flowers.
