In New South Wales on the outback sheep station of Mungo, there is an ancient lake which has produced some of the most significant finds for anthropologists and scientists anywhere in the world. Here in the sand dunes of the wind eroded Walls Of China, the earliest evidence of man making flour, of ritual cremations and of shell fish as food, have been uncovered by the shifting sands of time. On the Great Barrier Reef we see how a newly discovered minature coral is providing some unusual and decorative jewellery.
