Event description
Join accomplished author and public speaker Tim Richards as he regales us with stories from his epic 7000km rail journey around Australia.

About this event

Tim Richards, author of new releases Heading South and Ultimate Train Journeys: World, is coming to Hoppers Crossing Library to share with us his experiences travelling by rail. Join us as he takes us on an epic journey through the centre of Australia, where he learns of local legends including the enigmatic C.Y. O’Connor and Kris the Croc, as well as finding himself standing in the footsteps of influential historical figures such as General Douglas MacArthur, and the ill-fated expedition of legendary explorers Burke and Wills. In the absence of travelling yourself, what better way is there to experience a slice of true Australiana?
