Let Life Pass You By On Your Australia Tour

Jun 1, 2008
When taking a ride on The Great South Pacific Express, sample many great destinations like Sydney, the capital city of Canberra, and on your way to the Great Barrier Reef, tropical Cairns provides your Australia Tour fix. The Great South Pacific Express features solid red cedar wood walls, myrtle burl panels and stained glass roofs making the train one of the most luxurious trains in all of the world.

The Queensland Rail and Venice Simplon Orient Express came together to produce a train that is 20 cars long with excellent sleeping carriages. These carriages are all en suite and air conditioned making it the equivalent to a 4 star hotel on rails. With a variety of restaurant and lounge cars, the Express specializes in personal service with a distinctive European style. This is obtained by placing a steward in every carriage to assure optimum passenger satisfaction Also, a pianist provides entertainment while you enjoy views from the Observation car making it an excellent place to observe the scenery as it waltzes by you.

If you are tired of being a passenger of planes, trains and automobiles why not take a safari to see what the real Australia has to offer. Like judging a book by its cover, there are volumes of fantastic attractions that can not be seen from the side of the road. Like age old African safaris, get off the beaten path, or any path at all, in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Visit the infamous Outback desert or in contrast a balmy tropical rainforest. With so many national parks and deserted beaches it is like having your own private country.

Locations you must see start in cities such as Darwin and Uluru where you can explore the Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, Kings Canyoun and the Uluru rock, mataranka and more. While in the area the Atherton Tablelands, Katherine Gorge and many outback cattle stations are quite intriguing. While traveling the coastline near Melbourne, check out the seals at Cape Bridgewater or discover Coorong National Park or travel the Great Ocean Road.

Near Adelaide you can check out the Barossa Valley wineries, and explore the outback mining community of Coober Pedy. Natural wonders include the regal Flinders ranges and Wilpena Pond. On the way from Sydney to Cairns, take a moment to fondly reflect on Byron bay, see working sheep farms and take time out to relax on the beach at Surfers Paradise or set sail sampling the islands in the Witsundays.
