There are many varying forms of transport in Australia. The nation is highly dependent on road transport, but because of the sheer vastness of the continent and the great distances that separate urban centres, there is a great reliance on air travel. There are more than 300 airports with paved runways. An extensive rail network for passengers connects many rural areas to major metropolitan centres. The mining sector is reliant on rail to transport its product to Australia's ports for export.
I recently had occasion to fly interstate for work on several occasions and got these photos from my window seat. I was particularly pleased with the view of Melbourne CBD and the Bay beyond as shown int he last few photos.
