Australia’s so-called ‘Ghan’ cameleers were mostly Muslim and Sikh men from India, Afghanistan, and Persia, whose travels across Australia’s desert interior, formed the basis of the country's vast transport networks. The stories of their unique bonds with Aboriginal communities have inspired the new Australian feature film, The Furnace. Once you see the film, now in cinemas, you’re going to want to know more about this overlooked chapter in Australia’s history.  COMING SOON.
