Australia.  This 100 year old railway goes from Belgrove, near Melbourne, to Gembrook in the foothills of the Dandenong ranges.  Its quite amazing to see the coaches full of people with their legs hanging over the side on this 2 foot 6 inch gauge railway.  The track is approximately 10 miles in length.  Baldwin and Garret loco's are seen in steam.  What a trip!  Enjoy the pictures.

Australia.  Sovereign Hill was a gold mine and smelting facility in 1851 and is now a museum.  The Cornish Boiler that powers the site is worth a look.






   
   
Tasmania.  Nothing better than a flight from Melbourne to Hobart in Tasmania.  Civil aircraft bashedand plenty of glorious sunsets and beaches.  Some interesting ships can be seen in the harbour.
