Meriam House - Aborginal Environments Research Centre site at The University of Queensland A Meriam domed house, this being a particularly large example with a central post rather than a free-spanning dome structure. The interior sometimes contained tiered sleeping platforms and storage racks, with a fireplace next to the door. (Memmott)

Although the exact location of this photograph is unknown, the structure most likely belongs to the groups found to the west of Alice Springs, such as the Warlpiri and Luritcha. This shelter is predominatly a day-time shade constructed in a dome form by implanting the stems of branches in a circle of holes. It is designed to allow cooking winds to permeate through, but to filter out flies.

Aboriginal housing mostly consisted of simple shelters made from a framework of straight branches, then covered with leafy branches or sheets of bark.  The covering depended on locally available materials at the time. In some areas sheets of soft paperbark, easily pulled from trees, were available. In other areas stiffer sheets of thick stringy-bark were cut from trees, but if these were unavailable, then bushes and leafy branches were used.
