History

First introduced in 1947 and hauled by a steam locomotive, the original Australind was the final link in the provision of a newly coordinated rail-road service network throughout the State’s south-west.

In the mid 60's the Australind changed to a diesel-electric locomotive and due to the internal features the train was considered to be more stylish than air travel.

In 1987 the self-powered diesel units were introduced and the Australind took on the marketing slogan 'the train that thinks it is a plane'.

The Australind has travelled an estimated 6 million kilometres.

he Australind provides two train services each way every day of the week between Bunbury and Perth.

The journey time is two hours and 30 minutes.

Snacks and beverages are available for purchase from the buffet and there are bathroom facilities on-board.

The service is accessible for person's using a disabled conveyance.

The Australind is a cash-only service and credit card and EFTPOS facilities are not available for on-board.

Australind services to Bunbury Terminal depart from Platform 3, Perth City Station on Wellington Street.

North Dandalup, Yarloop and Cookernup are all low level platforms and passengers are required to use stairs in order to board and/or detrain at these stations.

You'll love it Ozbob! Went there in January, easily Australia's best PT network. Warning - it is dry and hot, the sun is very strong!

Recommend Elizabeth Quay Station and Perth Central. Also Kings Park - highly recommended!!

And no visit to Perth is complete without a fast ferry to Rotto ;)

Once you have experienced the speed and quality of the Perth rail system, using the same trains as QR, you will never look at commuter rail quite the same again.

It's fast, its frequent, it's nimble! And their smartcard is very fast at opening the gates. Probably slightly faster than our Go Card.

Looking forward to checking it all out. Hopefully no track closures when I am there. Will check out all lines.

Where I am staying is only a couple of minutes walk from Elizabeth Quay station too!

Check out the bus / train interchanges on the Mandurah line. Now that is what I call an interchange ( done properly ! )
I feel that the long distance between stations is what makes the transfer model work.

Hope is not lost for Brisbane.

Many metro systems have closely spaced stations in city areas. They make up for that by running trains frequently, which results in time savings coming from cut waiting time, rather than speed. Brisbane could do this by adding more trains more often to existing lines in the off peak.

DOO and ATP would help that immensely.

Many ways to skin a cat!

Cannot purchase Smartrider (other than student) on line.  So will have to buy when I get to WA. 

Seems that there no retail outlets at Perth Airport that sell Smartrider so will have to buy at Perth Train Station when I get there (day I arrive, 2nd is a public holiday).

Bummer not being able to buy a smart card online or at the Airport. There might be a ticket vending machine at the bus stop like what they have in Adelaide. Love to go to Perth one day apparently you can drive just under an hour and you are in the desert with sand and spinifex.

Slight change of plans now going to Bunbury on the Australind on Thursday 5th January, and now going to Geraldton on the 4th (air).

Geraldton has an old railway station and once was well served by rail.

http://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-231434940/view

Geraldton railway station was located on the Kwinana-Geraldton and Northampton lines in Western Australia. It served the city of Geraldton.

Has the same issue earlier in the year. Had to pay for cash fare to Busport to buy Smartrider. At least I have a slightly positive balance on the card now for any future visits.

They also have ferries in Perth.

I like their SmartCard - you can use it to pay for paid parking at stations (all carparks now charged for) and it has a B-Pay Code printed on the front of the card too.

When I was there, I found the response times to be very good.

Kelmscott station has bus interchange between the tracks on the platform in effect  Buses cross the railway line to access the station - this is possibly a risk but it looks marvellous with buses adjacent to trains.  The photographs don't show it that well.

Photographs R Dow 3rd January 2017


The rail network for Perth and its suburbs is not a major network but is very efficient and operates with minimum of fuss with frequency.  Connections and transfers are seamless.  All services travelled on today had good passenger loads, particularly inbound off peak Mandurah > Perth.  It really is very good overall.  All stations were clean, functional without being gold plated, and graffiti was very very sparse.  Perth is a very tidy place overall.

Popped down to check out the Perth Bus Port

Interesting concept of dynamic bus route stand allocation (bit like airport departure and arrival gates - no fixed allocation).

^ having a great time thanks Otto.  Yes I checked out the new stadium yesterday (from the train) very impressive the new stadium station etc.  I went out to Thornlie and Armadale before the disruptions start from Friday.  PTA had staff out at the major stations briefing passengers about the looming disruptions to their lines.

Off to Geraldton today.
