These timeless trackes to goldfields, hundred of kilometres inland from Geraldton, started by the sheepmen, scored with the footprints of man and animal, deepened by the wheels of waggon and coach, made redundant by the rail, linger on the monuments to the stout hearts of the folk who travelled them in the golden years of the roaring ninteties.

This is the story of tracks to the Murchison Goldfields and the people who made and lived at the wayside coach stations.
