Ghan, The: The Full Journey - Collector's Edition
“A rollicking fly-on-the-wall journey across the heart of Australia” – The Sydney Morning Herald
An Australian first foray into the ‘slow TV’ movement, this is an immersive journey on Australia’s most iconic railway that reveals - in real time - the stunning topographical vistas and dramatic palette changes from Adelaide to Darwin, while unpacking our Indigenous, multicultural and social history in the most surprising way. The train line and subsequent development of central Australia and the growth of Darwin, Alice Springs and Port Augusta can be attributed to local Indigenous communities’ knowledge of surviving the harsh desert, as well as early immigrants, including Europeans, Chinese and the Afghan cameleers ‘The Ghan’ is named after.
This 17-hour extended-duration version captures the entire iconic 2,979-kilometre rail journey from Adelaide to Darwin, omitting the black screen night time segments of travel.
