The Journey - Alice Springs to Darwin on the Famous Ghan

After learning about its past, it was time to jump on board the "Legendary Ghan".

I wonder why a train has such legendary status? It was a good train journey, I admit, but I do question why its looked on in such "legendary" status. I have a feeling it is because its a train journey which has played a huge part in linking Australia's North to Australia's South.

Here I am, standing beside the Famous Ghan.

Here I am at Katherine, (my namesake, but different spelling). Tourists had the option to go off and spend 3 hours touring around Katherine, but I spent the time sleeping.
