Photographs, records, artefacts and cameleer stories
As many as 3000 cameleers from Afghanistan, northern India and today's Pakistan developed vital networks of transport and communication throughout Australia's arid inland before the arrival of motor transport. Australia's Muslim Cameleers website shows the contribution of these people to Australia's history during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The website tells their story – drawing upon a rich collection of rare photographs, expedition records, artefacts and more than 1200 cameleer biographies.
