Come with me on a train ride. We’ll travel 4,352 kilometres across Australia from east to west, spending four days and three nights on a train 731 metres long. We’ll start in Sydney and stay in Perth at the end and along the way we’ll traverse deserts, stop in a ghost town and cross the mighty Nullarbor Plain. Come with me on a transcontinental journey aboard the iconic Indian Pacific!
Indian Pacific Adventure #19 Perth to Sydney
After travelling across Australia from Sydney to Perth on the Indian Pacific for four days, our return journey took just under five hours.
We farewelled to the beautiful city of Perth on a mid-morning flight,
passing over the vast expanse of the Nullarbor Plain we had crossed on the train.
Our route took us over the coastline of the Great Australian Bight, where the icy waters of the Southern Ocean meet the spectacular Bunda Cliffs.
We travelled forward by three hours, catching up with the setting sun over New South Wales,
before Sydney’s familiar landmarks finally came into view.
Our fabulous transcontinental journey from Sydney to Perth and back again was over.
Linking to Becky’s November Walking Squares – even though there was no walking in these photos, we walked a lot that day; through two airport terminals, one train station and a car park!
