Australia travel guide



Getting Around Australia: Trains

Getting around Australia by train is probably not the best way, rail-systems in this country are not well developed and the train service is more used for freight transport, but it's true that travelling this way it's possible to see more about Australia and its splendid landscapes. Trains in Australia are comfortable enough, are safe and have many facilities and a good service. The main routes in Australia are from Perth to Adelaide and from Melbourne to Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns. Prices are a bit expensive than bus service, some companies offering long- distance train services are:
