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.
