Rail Tours in Australia
The Great Trains of Australia
Travel by train and Australia unveils her secrets. It is a hard life down under, but only if you have a phobia of vast open skies, dramatic landscapes, fine dining, stunning sea life and friendly locals. With the tropical eucalyptus forests blending into savannah and then hundreds of miles of red desert, taking the train across Australia requires a special kind of locomotive.
The trains of Australia are iconic yet practical - fit for the purpose of journeying across a rugged continent. Named after the hardy Afghan camel The Ghan runs north to south while the legendary Indian-Pacific crosses from Sydney to Perth over the longest straight track of railroad in the world.
