Over 100 years ago, Afghanis brought camels to Australia. They worked when the overland telegraph line was installed between Adelaide in the south and Darwin in the north, a distance of about 3,000 km.
Now, we have hundreds, if not thousands of wild camels roaming round in Central Australia. We have developed a camel meat industry which has been successful and most recently sent a number of camels to Qatar to help provide a different genetic stream in their camel industry.
We have many more camels than Qatar has, so it was a good deal for Qatar and Australia.
It's ironic that the camels that cme from the Middle East are now being returned to the Middle East.
