AUSTRALIA BY RAIL is a vibrant guide containing over 100 reviews of rail experiences across the Australian continent.


Its listings are arranged in categories covering Tourist Railways, Rail Tours, Interstate Trains, Regional Trains, City Trains, City Trams, Miniature Railways, Museums, and rail-related Resources.


AUSTRALIA BY RAIL is aimed at fans of rail travel, and focuses on tourist-friendly railways: including quirky attractions such as the self-propelled open-air vehicles of Tasmania's Railtrack Riders; popular tourist operations like the Kuranda Scenic Railway and the Puffing Billy Railway; and mighty continent-spanning rail journeys such as that of the Indian Pacific. It also lists rail museums across the nation.


The app also includes the operators of regional trains within each Australian state, as well as the operators of rail transport within cities.


AUSTRALIA BY RAIL will entertain, inform, and inspire its users to ride the trains and trams detailed within.


Purchase includes future updates packed with more items of interest, and at only $1.99 the app is less than the price of a cup of coffee.
