Hello everyone from the wilds of Central Burma!
The 3,699km stretch of National Highway 1 has been renamed the Savannah Way and aims to entice more travellers to regional Australia.
The riches to be found along northern Australia's ultimate adventure drive include 15 national parks, one-third of Australia's World Heritage sites, and some fair-dinkum Aussie culture.
A unique way to see the sights is on board the Savannahlander Train, which runs from Cairns, through the rainforests of Kuranda, the cane fields of Mareeba and across outback Queensland to rejoin the Savannah Way at Mount Surprise.
The train was state of the art - in the 1960s and has a top speed of 50km per hour, so you won't miss seeing anything.
Train driver Gary West has seen thousands of happy passengers in his time, and a few dramas, like cyclones washing out bridges.
He says they stop the train every now and then to point out interesting features on the landscape or to boil the billy.
And when he spoke to ABC Radio Kimberley, Gary had pulled up outside the Railway Hotel at Almaden on the Atherton Tablelands, where he 'phoned in from the bar!
