      Mostly, although the big bull wasn’t that excited about us being there!

      Thank you, and come on over, you’ll love it! We’re a loveable bunch…

      And on camels, we have way to many and they are feral…

      Cheers, Baz 😉

      I can see that would be a woolly problem 😉

      They moved off eventually, but the “bull” stood his ground for a long time.

      On this trip I had one run along the track in front of me for about 10-kilometres at almost 30-kilometre an hour. They travel some large distances…

    Central Australia has suited the camels so much that their numbers have grown hugely. As a result, they have become destructive to the environment and, consequently, to some native animals.
    There is controversy over a big culling programme that’s been/being undertaking. Some people say it’s cruel, but something has to be done to reduce the numbers. 😦
    It is great to see them in the wild though, even if they are ‘invaders’.

    Camels! I forgot you have them over there! Their coloration blends right in with the reddish soil. Great photo! 🙂

    Where’s the best place to go in Australia to see wild camels?

      Howdy, they are quite prolific in the central parts of Australia. Originally introduced by Afghan Cameleers, there are huge populations in remote areas..

      Oddly, they will follow any track, no matter how faintt it is…

        Thanks. Still got central and western Australia to explore yet so I’ll keep that in mind.
