Fieldwork Showcase: Wilinggin Country in the Kimberley-Charnley River/Artesian Range

1st September 2022

Professor Simon Haberle and his team just completed a remarkable field trip to Wilinggin Country in the Kimberley-Charnley River/Artesian Range, amidst the cultural landscapes of the Ngarinyin people and co-managed with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy. Sediment cores will provide insights into long-term climate change and cultural landscape dynamics.

Here’s a special visual glimpse into their experience onsite!

Hard clays require a hard drilling crew… expertly done by Dr Rachel Rudd, Teresa Dixon and Charmaine Howie with Hamish Mcgowan from UQ School of Earth and Environmental Sciences


Crepuscular rays are a feature of sunsets on Wilinggin and Dambimangari country in Kimberley. Long sunsets are prolonged by residual tephra from the Hunga-Tonga volcanic eruption.


And check out this very cool video too!
