  • The Pichi Richi Railway began in 1878 as Port Augusta and Government Gums Railway. Quorn became the cross-roads when travelling north to south, or east to west across Australia. During the WWII almost 200,000 Australian troops travelled north through Quorn on the Central Australia Railway when the Quorn CWA - Country Womens' Association served over 1,000,000 meals to troops.
  • Pichi Richi Railway's unique and iconic "Coffee Pot" formally known as South Australian Railways Steam Motor Coach No.1, is the last one in the world. Lovingly and authentically restored by the PRR volunteers it's now back on the rails and so worth seeing, the outside is really interesting but the interior of this train is just magnificent.
