Camels were introduced to Australia in 1840 from India, mainly to help pave the way for the exploration of the interior as well as to assist with the construction of rail and telegraph lines. Today some 500,000 feral camels roam parts of the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. Herbivores, camels tend to eat most plant material such as fresh grass and shrubs. They are prolific travelers too able to cover distances of up to 70 kilometres in a day.
