Great Australian Railway Journeys


Australian Trains like The Ghan and the Indian Pacific cross the continent from south to norht and east to west respectively, covering great distances, often over isolated and difficult terrain.

Other routes, such as the West Coast Wilderness Railway on the west coast of Tasmania and Kuranda Scenic Railway in northern Queensland traverse much smaller distances in rugged and precipitous mountainous country.

These railways were once the primary means of linking isolated Australian settlements with more populous cities. Today tourists include these routes among the great railway journeys of Australia.

High-crown Seahorse Hippocampus procerus.

Seahorses live in weedy habitats in the shallows, and among sponges when in deep water. They rely on a prehensile tail and mastery of camouflage, including the ability to change colour, to avoid predators. The High-crown Seahorse is found from Moreton Bay to Fraser Island in Queensland.
