Title[edit]

This article was once named "Transportation in Australia" instead of "Transport in Australia"

And I thought the page would be about convicts... m.e. 11:25, 31 May 2004 (UTC)

That's not very funny. Hypernovean 11:55, 31 May 2004 (UTC)
I agree with m.e.- transportation in Australia means convicts. Why do we have to copy US usage? In Australia the word "transport" is used. Thortful 05:16, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Tunnels[edit]

There is no mention of the role tunnels play in Australian transport. Should the major tunnels have at least a paragraph in this article? The Tunnels in Australia category has 10 listed and there is also List of tunnels in Australia - Shiftchange 00:52, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Runway Length Measurements[edit]

I thought the runway length measurements were a bit strange, until I realised they were converted from feet, so I've added feet so that they are more useful for comparison purposes. 124.176.58.145 00:47, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Environmental impact[edit]

I've added some references to this section, but the statements about fossil fuels being subsidised are unsubstantiated. A Melbourne (talk) 05:22, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Conflict between article and list[edit]

The article states that "Australia has the second highest level of car ownership in the world." But the list it links to (List of countries by vehicles per capita) has Australia at 6th, with the USA at #2. JasonK33 (talk) 12:10, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
