A self-taught anthropologist, Daisy Bates conducted fieldwork amongst several Indigenous nations in western and southern Australia. She supported herself largely by writing articles for urban newspapers on such topics as 'native cannibalism' and the 'doomed' fate of Indigenous peoples. Bates also published her work on Indigenous kinship systems, marriage laws, language and religion in books and articles. She was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for Aboriginal welfare work in 1934. Bates' birth year was changed from 1863 to 1859 on 16 January 2018 after consulting the references in Bob Reece's work and Susanna De Vries' book .

Daisy May Bates first arrived in Australia in 1884 and worked as a governess in Berry, New South Wales from 1884-1885. She worked on the in London, 1894-1899, gaining expertise in journalism.

From 1899-1900 she was at the Trappist mission, Beagle Bay, north of Broome and in 1904 was appointed by the Western Australian government to research the tribes of the State. Bates was a member of an expedition led by A.R. Radcliffe-Brown to study the social anthropology of Aboriginal people of north-west Australia in 1910.

Over more than twenty years Bates camped at several locations in South Australia and Western Australia; Eucla, 1912-1914; near Yalata, 1915-1918; and near Ooldea, 1918-1934; She was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for Aboriginal welfare work on January 1, 1934. She was a member of the British Royal Anthropological Institute and the Australasian Anthropological Institute.

Bates wrote her autobiography 'My natives and I' in a tent at Pyap, South Australia, 1935-1940. This was serialised in and later edited and published as in 1938. Her articles appeared in several newspapers, including , , , and .

She lived in Wynbring, east of Ooldea, South Australia from 1941 until old age and failing health led her to return to Adelaide in 1945, where she remained until her death in 1951.

Bates is remembered in an ambivalent light by Indigenous and non-Indigenous folk-lore, and has been represented in children's literature, theatre, film and opera. According to the , Bates was given the affectionate name 'Kabbarli', meaning 'grandmotherly person'; the records that Anangu people living at Yalata have referred to Bates as 'Daiji Bate mamu' ('mamu' meaning ghost or devil) and as 'that poor old lady at Ooldea.'

Daisy Bates worked for many years as a welfare worker amongst the Aboriginal tribes of Western Australia and through this she built up an extensive anthropological knowledge of Aboriginal cultures which she recorded in numerous articles and her autobiography. The Aboriginals gave her the affectionate name of "Kabbarli", meaning grandmotherly person. Her place in Australian folk-lore has been formalised by the opera, "The young Kabbarlie", written by Lady Casey to music by Margaret Sutherland.

    Eleven letters from Daisy Bates to the Fairbairn family in Perth, mostly written from her desert camps. The first letter (20 Sept. 1901) is to Robert Fairbairn, a magistrate, commissioner and governor of Freemantle Prison. Bates thanks Fairbairn for sending "the copy of the Govt Gazette containing your letter re the native question" besides other references. The second letter is addressed to Mrs Fairbairn (20 November 1912) and includes a detailed description of the journey and arrival at Eucla (WA). The other nine letters are addressed to their daughter, Ainslie, between 1913-1946. In the letter dated 16 October 1943, Bates describes this month as her "84th Birth month", confirming the recent research in Ireland which established her birthdate as 1859, not 1863 as previously thought. In the letter she adds, "I have never asked the natives to work for me & do every last-least-littlest-duty myself. I never thought, from the beginning of my work amongst them, that it was fair to them, to expect them to wait on me, nor have I ever "trained" them to such work. Missions do these things ..."
