It always amazes me that people lived in, well, a desert like that. I suppose tbe community is much like any other in the westernised world now.
PG: No, I don't think you could say the community is a typical western hamlet. So far as I know it is one of 6 Aboriginal family outstations in the area, not necessarily occupied all the time or even by the same people. Fresh food is limited -- if you visit you have to bring your own. Alcohol is banned. I presume non-aboriginal people have to be invited to go there.
