Though Australia is a big country and it takes time to travel from one destination to another, with a little careful planning and some local knowledge, it is easy to fit other worthwhile destinations into your itinerary with little or no extra demands on your budget or time. If you are coming to Sydney and would like to include another Australian destination into your trip, these itineraries make it easy. Travel options vary, with each itinerary utilising the most time and cost effective means of travel.
Australian Rail Travel Passes
If you are an overseas visitor, there are a number of rail passes available that allow you to travel across Australia by train at low cost. Most passes give you unlimited travel on certain railway networks over a set period of time for a set price, thus, the more you use it, the cheaper each journey becomes. All quoted prices and pass durations were current at the time of publication but may be varied without note by the operator of each service. Please contact each operator direct for current information, prices and conditions of travel. Note: Australian permanent residents are NOT eligible to use the Queensland passes.
