Information

Callanna Siding is the first of many relics of the Old Ghan railway line located 14km from Marree on the Oodnadatta Track. Travellers along the Oodnadatta Track can enjoy stopping at each of these sidings and exploring the ruins.

An impressive water tank (abandoned) and standpipe is all that remains at Callanna Siding but is worth a visit.

These railway sidings were used to refill the steam locomotives of the old ghan railway. Fettlers lived in small cottages at the sidings and maintained the site as well as the railway line between the sidings.
