This is a dedicated blog covering my overland rail trip to Australia departing from London on 27 August 2011. I’ll be travelling on standard trains, overnight sleepers and a couple of luxury trains, if I can connect up with them in time.
It could comfortably be done in 25 days but there are just too many fascinating lands between Europe and Australia so I’ll be meandering slowly across the planet.
I aim to roll into Sydney in early November but journeys end will be Perth in mid November.

Sydney to Perth
I am now on my last great train journey on the Indian-Pacific from Sydney to Perth & have stopped off at Adelaide & found that the station has free WiFi - well done Adelaide - catch up Sydney !
