This project combines a book, art exhibitions and web-based materials in an exploration of the understandings of the distinctive Desert Channels country of south-western Queensland. The region includes the Channel Country and adjacent Simpson Desert and extends north east of Longreach. Much of the region is production pastoral country, edging onto pure desert. The region is the source for the major desert rivers that flow intermittently in central Australia, draining into Lake Eyre.  The project is coordinated by Libby Robin, ecologist Chris Dickman and artist Mandy Martin.
