South Australia
A journey through the colors of the Painted Desert passing by Odnadatta and William Creck to reach the Flinders Ranges. Orange, red, yellow, white, and the blue of the sky are the colors of the South Australia Outback. A journey along the old railway that has allowed, in the late nineteenth century, to cross thousands of miles the boundless Australian desert.
Along with the photo report, there are several video insights that contribute to a better understanding of this part of South Australia. A desert full of color, history and traditions dating back to the beginnings of contemporary Australian history.
