The Australian Outback

Photography Prints

Written by:Gary Wonning

A familiar sight in the outback, the road train pulls three trailers and is over 150 feet long.  They are needed to deliver food and supplies to the various isolated sections of the desert. They are the lifeline to most living in harsh conditions. Without them, many would be unable to get supplies on a regular basis. Because of the distances they must travel, the ability to pull three trailers makes it possible for the truckers to realize a profit.
