I have not done this despite having travelled quite extensively.

It was on my "bucket list" however I seem to have lost the will to travel so probably will not do it.

Also now being on my own I do not think I would like it and the majority of my friends are married, so while I would like to do it, i possibly will not.

Oh! finy, it's a fabulous trip! If you can, go! The countryside is beautiful in its' starkness, & to actually travel on the longest straight stretch of railway track in the world, is a bit of a hoot! You meet lovely people on board, as everybody has the commonality of WANTING to be on this famous train!
The food's superb, & that first 'cuppa' early in the morning, delivered to your suite, is marvellous! Cheers!

I have not done it and it is something I have looked into doing but not managed to book it yet

It's on my to do list. I love train rides!
I would love to do it. I love train rides - anywhere. I like to go to Sydney fro Melbourne by train but the rest of my family think that there is something mentally wrong with me. Train travel is a great way to relax.

I would Not cross by car!

That would freak me out, even a new car.

I would only want to do it by Train...One day I will do it.
Oh! jonaj, flying's good, too! Lol!
by donjo
:) one day!
by jonaja
I have always wanted to do this trip by train,but have no desire to travel that far in a car!!! I doubt now that it will come to pass,though as I am not a good traveller thanks to being unwell.
I have vever done it by train, but I have driven across from Sydney to Perth twice now. Once is was dirt road from Ceduna to Norseman of Approximately 1350 km and then the second time it was approximately 1200 km of newly tared road.

When I go to Perth now I fly, but the train would be interesting, but a bit slow for me.
No I have not done it and not that keen at my age....prefer to fly which I have done on many occasion throughout life..

I went accross by bus in 1979 with a group from Rotaract. It was the 150th anniversary of European settlement. My husband and I are hoping to do the trip by car withn the year.
this is something I have not done , and yes by car would be the most interesting. although by train, would also be just as good.
I would like to do the trip by train one day.
Yes, have travelled on the 'Indian Pacific'
Perth-Port Pirie, then SA train to Adelaide. This was our 'present' to ourselves for 5th Wedding Anniversary! We had Twinette WITH Shower, & therefore was First Class!
Crossing the Nullabor Plain, with its' record 'Straight Stretch' was a brilliant experience.

We 'closed the circle' & travelled Sydney-Port Pirie, then SA train to Adelaide. First Class again!
This was a couple of years' later.

Love train travel. Been on both the 'old' & 'new' Ghan trains, as well. Fabulous!

I did the trip from Adelaide to Perth back in 2007, and it was fabulous. If you get the chance, do it!
I am saving up to go to Darwin on the Ghan next time
Not really - would find such a long train trip really boring, and that particular trip just doesn't interest me. I get bred on long overseas flights too.
I don't actually get "bred" on overseas flights, but do get "bored".

With all the in-flight entertainment available, how can you be bored on a long flight, norma?

Last flight taken was 13 hours' non-stop round trip to Antartica. Never bored whatsoever! Loved it!

Even beforehand, I always had books, or audio-cassette with my taped music, & my own headphones.
Have same for on train, & bus travel, short or long distance.
In car just listen to portable cassette player, with my chosen music, sans headphones, of course!

Done both a couple of times and both a great way to travel across this great country
by train as you can relax not worry about the bloody idiots on the road
Oh! yvonn, never a truer word spoken! Cheers..........
by donjo
That's right Yvonn, no ratbags, no cramped legs…..just relaxation and the sound of the train, I love it.
by fran.
I would love to do this! My brother and my other half are train mad so we will probably do it in the future. We try to have a few train trips wherever we go. I really love the sound of this trip.
by Rice
There are a few great train trips that I would love to take. The first one that I have done is from Toronto to Vancouver through the rockies, wow, the next across Australia, then India, Peru and many more.
I haven't crossed Australia by anyway, but we have sailed, both ways, on the same ship, in the space of 3 years, right around Australia, 35 nights each cruise, but my sister & her husband have taken their car on the train from Sydney-Perth & driven back. They enjoyed the train journey but hated the drive bak again! I've only been on the old Ghan from Alice Springs-Oodnadatta, overnight, with my mother & eldest daughter, back in '76. The old Ghan could only do 20 miles an hr!

Grann, have you done the train trip across Australia yet? I'd only like a reply in small letters, not those 'shouting' letters, & they take up to much space.
