Between Perth and Adelaide

Cook

The small railway settlement of Cook round abouts mid way between Perth and Adelaide, in the middle of the Nullarbor plain. ‘In the middle of nowhere’ is not an adequate description of the location of this place. The Indian Pacific makes a refuelling stop here and the passengers are let loose to explore the delights of this thriving community, the population of which is 5. On a good day. Once upon a time there were 200 here, a township complete with hospital, school and recreational facilities.

Passengers anxiously hovering around the train. Not a good place to be stranded.
