indianpacific

It seems like I only just finished unpacking from my trip to Fiji, but I’m heading off again. Tomorrow at lunchtime I’m taking the train to Sydney, to help out at a one-week wireless auditing course that is being organized by the SANS Institute.

Trains have always been my favourite type of transport, and the so-called Indian Pacific from Perth to Sydney is the last remaining transcontinental train in the world. It leaves Perth every Wednesday at lunchtime and arrives in Sydney the next Saturday at 10:15 in the morning.

It crosses the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world, 478 kilometers through the desolate Nullarbor plain. It stops four times, in Kalgoorlie, Port Augusta, Adelaide & Broken Hill, before finally arriving in Sydney’s. At that stage it has covered a distance of 4352 kilometers.

I’ll be back on the 21st. Cheers.
