"Country Link" Australia Transportation Tip by Arial_27

Australia Transportation: 251 reviews and 253 photos

Country Link is a railway services operated on the east coast of Australia; New south wales, Queensland and Victoria. I've made two trips with them; one form Sydney to a place called Griffith; an 11 hour commute total, and another from Sydney to Melbourne.

Make sure you check in your luggage no less than 30 mins prior to the departure. I was a few minutes late, and they refused to take my luggage. It wasnt a problem for me, it just meant I had to carry it onboard with me. But if you're carrying a lot, make sure you give yourself lots of time to check it in.

The trip itself however, was comfortable; food and drink for purchase and it was nice to see the surrounding scenery.
