As the world's largest island continent, Australia is as diverse as it is vast. From the lush green beauty of our tropical rainforests, to the desert extremes of the Red Centre and of course, literally thousands of beautiful, white sandy beaches. There's winding rivers, magnificent mountain ranges, vivid wildflowers, majestic waterfalls, unique wildlife, red desert vistas, crystal clear waterholes and some of the most liveable cities in the world. But because Australia is so big, driving around can seem a little daunting and missing the best of it from a plane at 35,000 feet is such a waste. Which is why rail travel is so perfectly suited for this great southern land. The varying weather, time zones, and vast distances between attractions will be of no concern to you as you explore Australia from the climate-controlled comfort of your carriage.
You'll find each and every one of our great train journeys has its own unique character and set of attractions. So now's the time to start exploring the information we've collected for you here for you to start planning your rail trip of a lifetime.
