Information

On the old Ghan line.
Duff Creek is one of those wide, shallow sandy creeks that winds it’s way through the low ranges and sand hills of this region. No more than 40 kilometres long, it has its origins in the worn hills of the Davenport Range and Mount Margaret about 17 kilometres to our east and eventually feeds into Weedina Creek which takes its water north to the Neale. It presents enough of an obstacle to the old Ghan to inspire a bridge that was over 150 metres long.
