Toward the end of our third day on the Indian Pacific, the Nullarbor Plain, that had kept us company for so long
started to change.
As the sun descended to the horizon
the sky awoke with colour.
Soon after sunset, we arrived at a railway siding at Rawlinna Station. With 70,000 sheep on 8,000 sqkm, Rawlinna is the largest sheep station in Australia.
By the light of a spectacular moon,
and fire pits,
we shared platters of barbecued meats and roasted vegetables while our resident musician entertained us with Aussie favourites.
The train stayed close, her warm glow welcoming us at the end of a wonderful evening.
