LEFTIES RULE

Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road. Drivers give way (or yield) to all traffic crossing or approaching from the right. Bus stops are on the left-hand side of the road.

TRANSPORTATION

Australia is a ginormous continent with travel times to match. For example, the flight between Perth and Sydney takes five hours.

DRIVNG TIP - Remember, cars drive on the left hand side of the road.

TRAIN

b CountryLink - Travelling long distances by train has been part of the Australian way of life for almost 150 years. CountryLink continues that tradition by carrying almost two million passengers every year to around 350 destinations in NSW, Queensland, the ACT and Victoria. CountryLink is part of the government-owned Rail Corporation New South Wales which also operates CityRail which provides the passenger rail service covering the greater Sydney region.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVELER TIP - With a Backtracker Rail Pass travelers can spend up to six months exploring some of the great places between Melbourne and Sydney and then on to Brisbane - or vice versa. This pass gives you unlimited economy class trips in both directions during the specified time period.

Included in the purchase of a backtracker rail pass are four bonus CityRail passes. First there's a DayTripper ticket so you can travel all day on Sydney trains, buses and ferries. Next is a return bus/train ticket to the famous Bondi Beach. And then there are two one-way train tickets to Katoomba, heart of the scenic Blue Mountains. You can choose between making a day trip or staying in the mountains for longer.
