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
