It saddens and embarrasses me that the history of the Golden Outback focuses on the European settlement and mining. The history of the Aboriginals who were the first humans to arrive in Australia is not apparent in the museums or tourist spots. This was most disconcerting in Laverton as the Shire’s resident population is largely indigenous.
Nevertheless it is impressive what the European explorers achieved in a remote area on the Western edge of the Great Victoria Desert.
What a shame! I like your sketches.
