Desert Media


Weekend Australian 2007

We are a small organisation but as far as media coverage is concerned, we feature heavily across all broadcast spectrums. Covid has obviously interrupted that momentum, but we have a number of film projects planned for 2023/24 as we resume our surveys.


Our inaugural 2007 expedition - The Arid Rivers Expedition - was front page coverage of the Weekend Australian, with an accompanying major article in the Weekend Magazine. Since then, we have appeared in numerous print, tv, radio and online features.


This reflects the importance of the scientific and anthropological data that we have discovered and documented, and our ongoing contribution in adding to Australia's desert knowledge.
