Travelling by Train in Australia - Traveller's Notes

If you choose to dine out when travelling by train in Australia then do not feel obliged to tip. Many Australians only tip at black tie venues or for exceptional service.

One of the major attractions of travelling by train across Australia is the scenery. In places the Australian landscape is as flat as still water while in others the ground shoots toward the sky in mesas and buttes.

For more information about taking the train through Australia please call the number at the top of the page.
