Afghans, telegraph lines and camels

Expect to read more of all the above. I’m turning over an idea for a djinni romance set in Australia and need to research who came to Australia with the camels and what their lives were like. Were they Afghans, or was that just lazy naming in the Nineteenth Century? If they brought a djinni with them, how would he have fit among the spirits of the Aboriginal Dreaming? Somehow I picture him turning into a laidback surfer. I don’t think that works, so clearly more research is called for 🙂 Research and imagination. Writing is fun.
