Yesterday we visited some of the xtra places that we couldn't get to earlier in the challenge. Click here if you missed that post. Today we check out one of the items that is on our bucket lists. We titled this "You're on the Bucket List"
Australia is a big place and there is still of lot of the country that we haven't seen. We could drive or fly across the country but there is something magical about seeing the countryside go by in the comfort of a train carriage. There are many different train journeys in Australia but the Indian Pacific, the most famous and longest journey is the feature of today post. The Indian Pacific takes you from coast to coast on a 3 day journey from Sydney to Perth. Throughout the trip you will see the pristine farmland, mountains and the vast expanse of the outback. It would be a great way to experience a large part of the Australian countryside in comfort. It is not a cheap trip but one Amanda and I plan to do at some point.
Cost: Prices are in Australian Dollars
