Riding around Red Lake on Arcoona station I came across many stone flakes, discarded by a once flourishing Aboriginal community in this area of outback South Australia. I even found one rock that looked like the one from which flakes had been chiped.
There really were hundreds of these Aboriginal artifacts about, easily found.
Red Lake is bounded on the east side by a firm sand dune, similar to those found at Lake Mungo and other lakes of the Willandra Lakes system in NSW. The dunes are erroding, though not as dramatically as those at the Lake Mungo, Walls of China. It was on these erroding sand dunes that I found the evidence of Aboriginal settlement, though I guess I’d find more stone flakes if I walked the more mobile dunes that are stablized by vegitation, further back from the lake.
