A Big Country – The Challenge of Lake Eyre (1978)

Synopsis

Lake Eyre is generally a massive environment of death or rather lifelessness, and every year for several months, John and Roma Dulhunty come to the lake to conduct their geological survey.

Curator’s notes

Roma and John Dulhunty are explorers of the great outback of Australia. An amazing pair, they’re planning their next six months of research on Lake Eyre at a time when most Australians are planning their retirement.
