The Muslim cameleers played a key role in unlocking the inland for European farming, mining and settlement. Aboriginal people had already been living there for thousands of years.

Imagine travelling 150 years back in time to the countries where the Muslim cameleers lived.  They travelled to Australia to assist explorers on their expeditions in search of land for sheep and cattle, minerals, new settlements and scientific specimens. 

Look at the map and list the countries they came from.

As a Muslim cameleer, your task would be to provide transport for remote communities and explorers on expeditions through the harsh inland of Australia.

Why are your camels better than horses for travelling in the outback?

In small groups talk about the difficulties you might face, the people you meet along the way and how you will stay in touch with your families.
