Interstate & country train services

Overland trains to and around Victoria offer a comfortable way to explore the state's diverse and at times dramatic landscapes.

Trains servicing country Victoria and interstate routes arrive at Southern Cross Station, part of the metropolitan train system's underground city loop service. However some lines do schedule passenger collection points at limited metropolitan train stations including Dandenong, North Melbourne and Caulfield.

Major cities and tourist centres in Victoria are serviced by V/Line, who also run a connecting bus service. The Overland train service from Adelaide is operated by Great Southern Railway Limited and takes between 9 and 12 hours depending on the scheduled stops, while the CountryLink XPT train service from Sydney to Melbourne takes around 10-11 hours.
