Rail Travel in Australia with Great Southern Rail 3: The Overland: Adelaide to Melbourne

The Overland trainAfter back to back trips on the Indian Pacific and The Ghan, going from Sydney to Adelaide, on to Darwin, and back to Adelaide again with just a few days in between, the 11-hour journey on the Overland was just the thing to wean myself off train travel gently. While the trip itself, the train and also the landscape are all a lot less remarkable, it was the perfect way to wind down a two-week rail journey and bring my Great Southern Rail adventures to a satisfying end.
