Anthony Bastic AM, CEO of AGB Creative, said:

“In developing creative concepts like this it reminds us of the importance in connecting people.

The Ghan connects people and Parrtjima connects people through light.” 

The Ghan, known for being one of the greatest train journeys, was transformed into a moving art masterpiece. The spectacular installation, designed by Chantelle Mulladad, depicts her sense of country, culture, and self. This design wrapped around three carriages on the famous train as it made its journey from Darwin to Alice Springs in the Northern Territory
