The Ghan

 

The story of the Alice Springs Railway

Fascinating glimpses of the past - tales of itinerant doctors, cameleers, and navvies - are interwoven with a first-hand account of this vital train service that has become Australian legend.

This is the story of the men who challenged a continent and constructed the railway known as The Ghan, through country where explorer Charles Sturt found the heat so intense that the ink on his pen dried before he could put it to paper.

To write the history of the Ghan, Basil Fuller made the journey in a brake van from Port Augusta to the Alice, along the way speaking with old-timers who remembered those epic days.
