I have been doing some work for my former employer that required me to find documents from the 1960s. Part of the search led me to earlier documents that expeditionary minded members might find interesting. The documents describe late 1940s to early 1960s surveys of remote areas of Australia and PNG. They are publicly accessible from the CSIRO publishing website via the link here .

The surveys were conducted by the former CSIRO Division of Land Research who undertook some epic expeditions into remote areas in the 1950s and early 60s. Old retired colleagues described how the whole CSIRO Black Mountain site would welcome them back as their convoy of vehicles returned after field trips of 6 months or more. I have seen some interesting photos of Series 1 Land Rovers, Blitz wagons and various other war surplus vehicles that were used. The camps and conditions were basic to say the least.

Thanks Warren, I've dowloaded a number for my records.

There is a lot of difference between
‘Human Being’ and ‘Being Human’.
