The Desert Uplands region is sandwiched between the brigalow belt to the east and the Mitchell grass downs to the west. Astride the Great Dividing Range and comprising four percent of Queensland's land surface, it is a region of eroded sanstone plateaus and extensive sand plains. Little known until recent land use controversies thrust it into the limelight, the Desert Uplands support an abundant diversity of flora.

'Flowers in the Dust' honours the region's botanical heritage through the exquisite watercolour paintings Barcaldine artist Jenny Mace. Jenny's work vividly demonstrates that there is beauty and significance to be found in the flowers that grow in the Desert's dust.
