2017 will be an important year for Pichi Richi Railway, Port Augusta and Quorn.

In 1912, work began on a new railway line between Port Augusta in South Australia and Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

Stretching across 1693 kilometres of Australia’s driest and most isolated terrain, the Trans-Australian Railway was completed on 17 October 1917, providing a link between the eastern states and Western Australia and helping to give the newly formed Commonwealth a sense of national unity.
