Wagga remakes popular SBS Slow TV episode, The Ghan

Don’t have three hours to watch SBS’s hit Slow TV show, The Ghan – Australia's Greatest Train Journey? 

Get a load of Willans Hill – Wagga’s Greatest Train Journey. 

The Daily Advertiser has produced a much shorter 10-minute immersive trek on the city’s iconic railway. 

In real time, the footage reveals the stunning landscaping and dramatic design of the Botanic Gardens, featuring the rail’s authentic station and booking office. 

It follows the original three-hour long documentary, that aired this week and averaged 400,000 viewers that night. 

Wagga’s version highlights the rich history and inspiring story of a much-loved Riverina attraction in an awe-inspiring way. 

The Ghan-style Willans Hill Miniature Railway footage will premier on the DA Facebook page at 9pm on Wednesday, January 10. 

It is anticipated to keep audiences on the edge of their carts as they wind along a 30-year-old track, snaking more than three-kilometres in total. 

Wagga's Ghan: Members of the Wagga Society of Model Engineering - including president Jim Weeden - helped produce the city's version of SBS' slow TV show, The Ghan.
