Old Ghan Train
Australia

The Great Northern Railway as it was originally known later known as the Afghan then later shortened to just "The Ghan" ran from Port Augusta in the South to Alice Springs in the Centre of Australia. The railway, due to the harsh desert conditions was deemed too hard to maintain and in 1980 was abandoned. This was due to floods washing bridges away. Another railway line had been built to the west to replace the now "Old" Ghan. A museum in Alice Springs contains a wealth of information about the old railway and includes one of its old trains.

Here inside one of the trains is a bedroom… Or is it a toilet? I’m not sure.

Mehr über Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
