George Goyder was the first European explorer to see great salt lakes in the inland in flood and to witness the amazing transformation that follows the breaking of drought. His experience put him decades ahead of his contemporaries in understanding the Australian climate. When he attempted to adapt the pattern of settlement by defining the border of the zone of reliable rainfall, his repeated warnings about the threat of drought were scorned. Today we can see the ruins of those who attempted to settle beyond the Goyder line in South Australia. Nature's line tells the story of Goyder's life and examines his work in the context of our current understanding of climate.
