A father and son, both rodeo riders, travel by train from Marree in South Australia to the Alice Springs Rodeo, in the Northern Territory.
They travel on a unique railway - The Ghan - which runs through the heart of Australia. It's an overnight trip through spectacular country, pausing briefly at towns along the way, as the men look forward to their final destination, a bull-riding contest between the best rough-riders in the region.
