Outback South Australia-In The Footsteps of Charles Sturt

The Road Less Travelled

We follow in the historic footsteps of Charles Sturt, one of the most important people associated with early South Australia. A man determined to settle the debate about an inland sea in the centre of Australia. When he finally reached the Stony Desert and the Simpson Desert he was convinced that there was no inland sea. Dust, heat, exhaustion, the exploration team headed by Sturt in the 1800's had it all, lets retrace those steps of these heroic men. Have something that you think we should feature, then please drop us an email at  phatcat@iinet.net.au   You can support us and become a patron here. Your hosts is Nicki SheaLike us on Facebook ​Follow us on Instagram Support us on PatreonListen on Apple PodcastsListen on Google Podcasts Listen on i Heart RadioListen on SpotifyThank you for supporting us and our guests.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/user?u=27844421)
