“The ‘Tea and Sugar’, which is the name given to the supply train that carries the necessities and minor luxuries of life to the tiny townships along eh Trans-Australian Railway, is a part of Australian folklore.  Most people have heard of it: few know anything about it.  Basil Fuller decided to find out for himself, and took a ‘Tea and Sugar’ trip across the Nullarbor.
This project developed into an exploration of the two routes linking eastern and western Australia across the vast, arid Nullarbor Palin: the railway and the Eyre Highway.  They are lifelines not only for Australia but especially for people living on the Nullarbor.”
