Australian trains will be fairly similar to French TGV. Like the Spanish trains (the background train in the photo), they will be based on Alstom technology.

The foreground train is Spanish-made by Talgo and its Canadian partner Bombardier.

Do the australians have a high speed train?! Or is it just on project?
From where to where?! What's the average speed for the traject?
Would like to see photos if it's real... but i highly doubt it is more than a project since i've never heard about it.... Either that, or it isn't propper high speed... But I may be wrong.

Your correct, there are no high speed projects currently underway, and there are no existing high speed trains. There is a semi-high speed project currently occurring on four regional Victorian lines from Melbourne and new trains that can reach 160km/h. The current fastest trains though are the Tilt trains in Queensland that run from Brisbane to Rockhampton (electric) and from Brisbane to Cairns (diesel) which can reach speeds close to 200km/h. There are still proposals for a high speed train link between Sydney and Canberra (in the above link), but it hasn't gotten anywhere yet.

I think there's another thread about this...

But why do you compare on of the oldest TGV with the newiest Shinkansen?

This is the TGV:





I like it beacause it's the fastest of the world (not in comercial use), and it's very safe: no accident since 1981.

^It's not a TGV, as our australian friend AG has already mentioned.
It's probably a train which top speed is between 160 and 200 km/h.
The top speed for the Porto-Lisbon train here in Portugal is 220km/h as it is a tilting train... And that's NOT high speed rail.

For historical value, the TGV
For style and accuracy, the Shinkansen
