After a lovely weekend in beautiful Adelaide, I embarked on another Great Southern Rail journey, albeit slightly shorter to Melbourne.

While still in Adelaide, the leafyness of the city was very apparent.

We passed through a very varied landscape, greener in South Australia and getting a bit dryer as we approached Victoria. There were clear signs of agriculture in some parts.

And very green and pleasant lands in others.

Along one stretch the train track followed a road and a traveller by another mode was enjoying the journey as much as I was.

Natural (and one unnatural) interruptions to the even landscape provided a hilly, watery and pipeline view – a change is as good as a rest.

And of course – gum trees woodlands were dotted along the way.

One of my favourite train shots was also available along the way – here is the Overland making a turn

And eventually – we arrived in Melbourne
