#177 Respect for the Past SOLD


Out of stock

Camped at Curdimurka, just south of Lake Eyre (Kati Thanda) in the heart of Arabana country Here are remnants of a past glory that can easily disappear into the past. It is flat and featureless, but it does have a story. Reflect on the difficulties of building the Ghan dream. Here we have the old water storage, slowly falling apart, we have the old water treatment plant, leaning like the tower of Pizza. But there is more. Why here? The Ghan followed the inland telegraph, that followed the mounds springs, that were crucial to the ancient trading routes across Australia. This is where Stuart commenced his five expeditions into the Red Centre. This is outback Australia.
