Sheila Laxon is travelling with the iconic Emirates Melbourne Cup presently, as ambassador of Australia’s most famous horse race. The tour was in Alice Springs this week, and she visited the Santa Teresa community some 87km away, where she was welcomed with open arms. She climbed aboard The Ghan today, and is heading towards Coober Pedy and then to Adelaide. 

Sheila is delighted that she could again be a part of this annual tour, with the Cup itself being such an incredible part of Australian heritage, and she was thrilled to meet everyone along the way.  Of course, there were the camels….
