    Hey, Will. I really want to thank you. I am currently recovering from a minor stroke I experienced last year. Your videos have brought a good amount of positive vibes in my life at a time when I needed some escapism.
    I used to travel pretty regularly and I miss it very much, but going along with you virtually is a lot of fun and makes me look forward to when I am healed enough to get back up and out there. Thanks, bro.

      @Yosef08 It came from "Trek Trendy message me on telegram" and said that they had a special gift for me and to message them privately to collect. I have since seen such messages come to me on other channels I frequent. They all come from the channel name plus "message me on telegram". It's a current scam to get people to sign up for the app I guess. It kind of made me feel sad because i felt special for a second LOL.

    Aussie here, I've been patiently waiting for you to come here to Australia and finally ride the Indian Pacific, especially with a trip report from West to East this time! (I mostly see trip reports the other way)
    Anyways, glad to see you enjoy the trip through the various landscapes, a shame to see some of the hiccups along the way (Broken Hill, rocky rides to interrupt your sleep) but I'm happy you showcased two of the Gold cabins. Believe it or not, I've yet to still do this trip and I've lived in Sydney my whole life 😅 But can't wait to see you do the Ghan!
    Would've been nice to meet you in person in Sydney (I mean, the NASA jumper gives it away lol) but you got a lot planned so onwards in your safe travels!
    Great video as always, I continuously watch your videos often and repeat until the day comes that I ride premium cabins in the sky (SQ A380 suites 4 weeks at time of this writing). I so cannot wait!

      @Dee Cee it's because the train is traveling through the Blue Mountains, the track is a lot more winding and tight corners with additional issues of going up and down height elevation wise that doesn't happen during other stretches of the track. It really affects everyone differently and depending on where you are in the train as to how uncomfortable it can be (kind of like in a boat the front and back can be more rocky/affected). I personally slept through it like a baby after my second time doing that section of track - but that's due to familiarity. It also happens at night both east-west and west-east bound based on the timings of the train which I think they specifically time them so it IS at night, as walking through the train actively during those sections of track/time is much more dangerous than normal travelling stretches.

    I was happy with the pleasant train experience you had. The train interior looked really clean, properly maintained and with wood surfaces all around, probably laminates, adds that warm luxurious feel. The roomette looked confining as well as the passage ways, so narrow for big people. But overall, it was great. Thanks Wil.

    Australia is a phenomenally diverse part of the world. As a frequent traveller there, I've done the usual well known places e.g. Sydney, Gold Coast, but it's the lesser known places and experiences that have constantly impressed and at times left my heart truly singing.
    I highly recommend to everyone to take a few weeks to explore this magnificent piece of Earth. Make sure you engage with locals also. The vast majority of Aussies are friendly, helpful, hospitable and knowledgeable.
    Safe travels.

    So glad you did this trip. Awesome to see you in Oz especially after all the issues getting into (and out of) Australia during the depths of the pandemic.
    The rough ride in NSW is thanks to the fact that the NSW track is the oldest you rode on. Both Western Australia and South Australia historically have used either 3’6” narrow gauge or 5’3” broad gauge but NSW has always used standard gauge. When the transcontinental railway through WA and SA was built it was decided to standardise it to standard gauge so that much newer and better laid track in WA and SA gives a super smooth ride whereas the older standard gauge track that is used in NSW is bumpy as all hell. I hope that makes sense.

It was so much fun! My mum made scrap books about the train for us 3 kids, with a map, interesting facts and quizzes, she was an amazing woman and Mum! We dined in the restaurant carriage and thought we were so posh lol and at night we went to the bar room where we met a crazy drunk guy who ate paper and a glass 🤣 great times as a kid hahaha Thank you for this video, after telling my husband all my stories, I can now show him one of the trains we went on!

    Thanks William. It's always interesting to watch one of your reviews. The Indian Pacific train is horrendously expensive even considering the distance. Little wonder many fly the distance. The single room looked far more comfortable than the twin one. I think it had to do with the direction of the bed. I'd hate to fall out of the bed. It's not much fun being shaken around on a train. Glad you survived the experience. The countryside though looks beautiful.

Also, as I understand, $1,700 US (or thereabouts) is the cheapest fare available? I’d love to take this ride after I retire in a year or so. Thanks so much-really enjoyed it!

    Great video but as I've done the train journey, the bathroom in the twin share cabin is not a "wet room" as you said as I noticed you did not have the shower curtain pulled around to contain the water within the shower so the rest of the bathroom stays dry.
    Also, we spent more time in the lounge area chatting & socialising with fellow guests as everyone is extremely friendly (travellers & staff alike).
    An absolute must-do trip - also the Ghan Adelaide to Darwin & return is equally as fantastic!

    this has been fun watching you experience Australia but I got to say as an Adelaidean you totally missed out by just going to central markets. next time try the malls balls on king William or maybe even the Torrens as its really pretty there. well basically any of the parklands are pretty cool.

      My Great Grandmother did the trip aged 84 in 2004 just after the Darwin-Alice Springs section was completed after 100 or so years of the full Darwin-Adelaide line being proposed and it definitely knocked her out when she got home, she was in bed for a week or so with exhaustion when we visited her in Bendigo one weekend!

    I was lucky enough to take my sister on a trip to Australia and take this train ride about 7 years ago, platinum class. It was fantastic, except for the tracks from Adelaide to Sydney. If you haven't taken the platinum class yet, you are certainly in for a treat when you do! They stuff you with food and drink! Large meals, and an afternoon tea with pastries made with passion fruit, champagne, etc. I don't think I have ever been more full in my life! Thanks for bringing back some happy memories, and for reminding me that I need to try the Ghan. When I was on board, they had the platinum, the gold, and also offered a "budget" class (no rooms, just seats, and no restaurant, but the ability to buy sandwiches and snacks. Not sure I could handle that, but it was significantly more affordable.

    Welcome to Aus. Sorry about the rough ride, but aside from that I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your journey across from Perth to Adelaide and Sydney. The meals are wonderful and the interior of the train has dramatically improved since I travelled from Melbourne to Perth and return almost 50 years ago. Unless I win the lottery, I fear it's beyond my budget now but,......you never know! Maybe my 6 winning numbers may come up and I'll be able to do it and the current version of "The Ghan" to or from Darwin. Have got a few other priorities first though now I'm advancing in years. Thanks so much for your coverage of this and other luxury train experiences and I do hope "The Ghan" is a little smoother for you. Cheers from Michael in Melbourne.😀😀😀

    As far as the rough ride, I hadda stop booking bedrooms on Amtrak and stick with roomettes because I noticed I sleep better when I’m rolling in the same direction as the train, I consider that orientation ‘north/south’ instead of the ‘east/west’ you get in the bedrooms.

    I am so enjoying your vid train journeys, but I especially wanted to see this one just to get a glimpse of the Nullabor Plain. It features in one of Arthur Upfield’s Boney books “Man of Two Tribes” where the aboriginal detective has to yomp across the plain to fins people who have disappeared from…wait for it…a train. It was first published in 1956. He wrote “The Bachelors of Broken Hill”, too. And I think my deductive powers have worked out you like chocolate!

    I moved from the UK to Adelaide about 5yrs ago and love AUS, it is so magical.

    If you ever do come back to Australia, the Spirit of Queensland is a great train trip - from Brisbane to Cairns. Their sleeper option is not a cabin (as was in the train it replaced), it’s more like first or business class in an aircraft. Queensland has the best long distance trains at moderate price as they’re still government-run.

    I did this trip in 2018 but I travelled from Sydney to Perth. This is much better than Will’s trip from Perth to Sydney. We stopped in Broken Hill for several hours with time to rake several tours. The train did not go directly to Adelaide but when we were near Adelaide we were given a choice of tours. I chose the winery tour and it was a good choice with lunch included. The stop at Rawlinna was at night and we had an outdoor feast. We did have Red seating on this train but I had roomette, which was enough because most time was spent in lounge with great company and free drinks. Will’s train was obviously shorter because in Sydney the train had to be stabled on two platforms and was close to kilometre long. I recommend the trip.

    I have done both directions over the past three years and was glad to get the rough part out of the way on the first night westbound. Also, if you get the chance when you ride the Ghan northbound, do the extra charge for the camel rides in Alice Springs or the helicopter ride at Nitmiluk Gorge in Katherine, both bucket-list experiences,
