Each year thousands of cattle are moved from the great cattle properties of north-west Australia to the railhead for shipment to southern markets. This film tells the story of one of these trips through 800 miles of some of the most picturesque country in Australia. A trip carried out as a round-the-clock enterprise operating giant 4S-ton road trains which carry cattle over the tracks where drovers once rode for weeks on end.
