Train Journey

As it's been so hot and I can't sleep I have been investigating a Train Journey from Sydney to Perth.
It sounds pretty good if you go for the "Gold Kangaroo" class with EnSuite, double bed and all meals paid for. The ticket cost of this will be about the same as a flight from London to Melbourne! It takes longer too. 3 days in all with a couple of stops where you can get out and have a tour.
One stop boasts a Population of 2, can't remember wher it is though.

I'm not really sure how to fit this into a 3 week holiday. I had thought that we'd fly into Sydney then go straight onto the train but on reflection we're never feeling that good after a 24 hour flight from the UK so looks like we'll have to go for a mid holiday journey. I think we could get the train from Melbourne to perth and then a Virgin Blue back to Melbourne.

We also need to fit in a trip to Newcastle to make contact with some distant relatives. Busy, Busy, Busy!
