The social history of Charles Darwin Reserve
Charles Darwin Reserve and its surrounding lands have been the scene of a varied parade of people in pursuit of their livelihoods. Some have just stopped by as short-term visitors while others have simply passed through on their way elsewhere. All have had to adapt to the country. They have lived in a variety of places, used a diversity of technologies, and developed social networks and connections as they have tried to achieve their ambitions.
Charles Darwin Reserve remains largely intact as a natural environment, yet the 'debris' of past activities tells fascinating stories of ambitions and disappointments, and successes and failures.
