Commemorative Issue

Great Australian Railway Jounreys

Australia
Australian trains cross the continent east to west and south to north, covering great distances over often isolated and difficult terrain. They also cover much smaller distances in rugged and precipitous mountain country. These trains were once the primary means of linking isolated settlements with more populous centres.

The issue showcases great Australian trains that traverse inaccessible places of Australia. Some, like the Indian Pacific, cross the continent from east to west, traversing thousands of kilometres, while others, like The Ghan
