The Birdsville Track, some 500 km. long, was originally used for droving cattle from Birdsville, in south-western Queensland, to the railhead at Marree in South Australia's mid-north, and traverses some of Australia's driest country. Having first visited the Marree police to have his 4-wheel drive vehicle, supplies of fuel and water checked, and registered his destination, Bill Peach sets off along the famous track. Over the 2-day trip, he visits the site of a former Lutheran Mission at Killalpaninna, crosses the flooded Cooper Creek by ferry, drives over the notorious Natteranie Sandhills, visits Cowarie station, then travels across the top of Sturt's Stony Desert, past the Clifton Hills and Goyders Lagoon, finally reaching Birdsville, on the Diamantina River, where he reports his safe arrival to the police, and meets some of the locals

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Bill Peach traces the heritage of Cornish miners, brought to South Australia to work in mines near Adelaide, then to the copper mines at Kapunda, Burra Burra and Moonta, and creating a "little Cornwall" in the State. He speaks to local identities, who recall the days when the mines were working, and the Cornish "Cousin Jacks" were a distinctive group, with their traditional dress and food (particularly Cornish pasties, which are still popular). Bill also shows some the buildings that remain in the area, from cave-cottages dug into the sides of creeks, and mine-chimneys, to some of the many Methodist churches

Nullarbor ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Bill Peach crosses the Nullarbor Plain, first from east to west, starting at Fowler's Bay, South Australia, and visited by several explorers, such as Flinders, Eyre and Forrest. However, Bill follows in the steps of Ernest Giles, travelling north through Colona to Ooldea, the beginning of the longest straight stretch of rail line in the world, and the area into which Daisy Bates moved in 1919 to work with local Aborigines. Giles went further north, discovering and naming the Great Victoria Desert, before heading west. Bill tests Giles' theory that the limestone Nullarbor Plain (formerly a sea-bed) was flat enough to ride across on a bicycle -- and finds it a most uncomfortable ride: Giles had sensibly stuck to camels. Reverting to motorised transport, Bill crosses the Plain, meeting Mrs. Crocker at Balladonia in Western Australia. A keen artist and naturalist, she records the insects, fauna and history of the region. Many attempts to farm the Nullarbor have failed, but there are some huge, successful stations. On his return trip, Bill joins the Eyre Highway, following closer to the tracks of Eyre and Forrest. Both men were terrified by the majestic, vertical cliffs where the Nullarbor meets the sea. The Nullarbor Plain contains many caves, which the Aborigines tended to avoid. Eucla on the border, the site of the East-West Telegraph Repeater Station, is now a ghost town almost buried in sand. On the northern edge of the Plain, Maralinga, site of a nuclear testing range, is now also a ghost town, soon to be dismantled. Finally, Bill reflects that Swift put Gulliver's Lilliput in the middle of the Nullarbor Plain, which was quite apt, as the sheer size of the plain reduces men to mere specks
