The Great Southern

Post by railmaps » Mon Oct 14, 2019 7:35 pm

A new luxury train, named the 'Great Southern' to be run by Great Southern Railway will operate weekly in December 2019 and January 2020. Utilising the train set from The Ghan (which will not run for those two months), the Great Southern departs Adelaide once each week for the three day journey to Brisbane via western Victoria, the Canberra (Capital) region, the Hunter Valley and Coffs Harbour. The train will also operate southbound from Brisbane to Adelaide.

Whilst the exact timetable and stopping places are notoriously difficult to determine, the route is illustrated in silver/grey on our maps

and the timetable (as best we can determine it) is visible here ... 2019-12-03

Here is a link to the online booking page ... -southern/
