jodub79 has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Has anyone travelled the Great Southern Rail, and would you recommend it? Seems cheap enough, $460 for 6 months travel on the 3 lines...

i actually wrote about the cheap train tickets for backpackers a while back.
i havent actually used this option yet as i havent gotten to oz... but ill be there in 2.5 weeks!!!
i plan on using the train during january, so if u only plan on getting to oz after that, i can let u know if its any good...
for all the others who might be interested, this is the previous thread:

Thanks Yaara,

Yeah that would be great if you could let me know if the trains are a good option. I'm going to oz in the middle of January, and don't plan on using the trains till Feb or March.
