The final chapter covers the life of the children and play – including "throwing the kookeroo", "throwing a flat boomerang", "playing with spears" and the nightly corroboree.

Written by Mr J.R.B. Love, a son of the manse and student from South Australia, this reports on "“two years of travel and investigation into the condition of the natives of unfrequented regions".

 It covers tribes in South Australia (Flinders Range District, Hergott to Birdsville, Far North and Oodnadatta area), Northern Territory (Alice Springs District, Tennant Creek to Daly Waters, Katherine to Darwin, Pine Creek to Western Australia border, Katherine to Borroloola and the Barkly Tablelands), North-West Australia, and Western Queensland looking at occupations, schooling, housing, wages and government and mission stations.

The Arunta are, as a rule, tall, well-built, and not very plump. The Hermannsburg members of the tribe were, when I saw them, a fine body of men and women. Indeed, these and the blacks of the north-east coast of the Northern Territory, are people of magnificent physique.
