Along the way, Griff will discover the history of the railroads, the people that operate them and the communities that rely on them – because it’s the railways that made modern Australia.
This series follows his journey on some of Australia’s most impressive long-distance trains – The Indian Pacific, The Spirit of the Outback, The Spirit of Queensland and the Iconic Ghan - travelling across the expansive outback and along spectacular coastlines.
To kick off the series, Griff explores the unique Australian continent aboard the legendary Indian Pacific. The first of two parts that will take him on a journey 4,352 kilometres across the country- from Perth in the state of Western Australia to Sydney in New South Wales. In this episode, Griff reaches as far as the golden town of Kalgoorlie.
Along the way he meets quokkas, miners, an Aboriginal guide, and highland dancers, all the while exploring the state’s vastness and riches. Griff seeks to uncover what defines the West from the rest-and perhaps most importantly- what is a sandgroper?
Griff’s Great Australian Rail Trip premieres Tonight - Tuesday Feb 4 at 8:30pm on ABC
