Transportation in Australia

Some times a more economical way to get around Australia is to utilize the train "system" or bus services that are available. We do need to tell you up front that travelling by train in Australia may not be as convenient as the experience that you have in Europe and probably not even as advanced as Amtrack in the United States. None the less, the train and bus services in Australia may offer a less expensive alternative of travel in Australia.
