Great Australian Railway Journeys

Four of Australia’s most scenic railway trips are celebrated in the Great Australian Railway Journeys stamp issue.

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 centers.

The great Australian railway journeys featured are:
* 55c – The Ghan
* 55c – West Coast Wilderness Railway
* 55c – The Indian Pacific
* $2.10 – Kuranda Scenic Railway
