Itineraries

 

Sydney to Perth

Day 1: Sydney & Blue Mountains

Your transcontinental adventure begins as we pull away from the platform in Sydney in the mid-afternoon. As we wind our way through the truly breathtaking Blue Mountains, a sumptuous dinner accompanied by an array of fine wines is served. After dinner, feel free to relax with a nightcap, before heading off for a restful night’s sleep

Day 2: Broken Hill, Barossa Valley & Adelaide Surrounds

We arrive in the ‘Silver City’ that is Broken Hill as the day begins, where you embark on your choice of Off Train Excursions that encompass the mining and cultural history or the unexpected oasis of art. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast back on the train as we make our way west. Relax and take in the views and before you know it, lunch is being served as the Indian Pacific enters the southern tip of the spectacular and ancient Flinders Ranges. Arriving in the beautiful and elegant city of Adelaide in the afternoon, guests have the choice of a tour of the city or a visit to the world-famous and historic wine region of the Barossa Valley or the Adelaide Hills region including a delectable visit to Hahndorf. All tours include dinner. Reboarding the train late in the evening, feel free to share your experiences in the Lounge with old and new friends alike, before getting a comfortable nights sleep.

 

Day 3: Nullarbor Plain

You’ll awaken in the seemingly endless expanse that is the extraordinary Nullarbor Plain. Breakfast is served as you travel along the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world. Relax, read, chat or just take in the ever changing views. That evening enjoy the tranquillity of dinner off the train and under the stars in the remote and beautiful Rawlinna.

Day 4: Avon Valley & Perth

Breakfast is served as we glide through the colourful patchwork of rolling hills that is the Avon Valley as we make our way to Perth, arriving after an onboard lunch.

 

Perth to Sydney

Day 1: Perth, Avon Valley & Kalgoorlie

Your journey from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean begins, as we pull away from the platform in Perth mid-morning. Enjoy a superb, modern Australian lunch as we glide through the picturesque rolling hills of the Avon Valley. Take in the views and perhaps a glass of fine wine before indulging in a three course dinner prior to our late night arrival in the famed. Wild West township of Kalgoorlie. Here guests will enjoy an Off Train Excursion and gain an insight into the town's history before retiring to the comfort of their cabin. 

Day 2: Nullarbor Plain 

 Awake to the spectacular expanse of the Nullarbor Plain before enjoying a breakfast off the train. A selection of regionally inspired meals from the lunch menu is yours to choose as an ever-changing landscape passes by your window and you reflect on the harshness, remoteness but captivating beauty of the region, before experiencing the charms of the once thriving community and now ghost town of Cook. Another mouth-watering dinner is followed by relaced conversation in the Lounge before a restful night's sleep and subsequent arrival into the graceful and picturesque city of Adelaide. 

Day 3: Adelaide, Flinders Ranges & Broken Hill 

Guests have the choice of a city walking tour where you can enjoy a feast for every sense at the extraordinary Adelaide Central Market or a couch tour taking in the world-famous Adelaide Oval and the leafy beauty of the Adelaide Hills. Back aboard the train, the journey continues and lunch is served while in the distance the magnificent Flinders Ranges passes by and the rugged, rocky landscape gives way to outback scrub as we arrive into Broken Hill in the early evening. Here there is again a choice of cultural Off Train Excursions before dining back on the train and and taking time out to socialise with fellow guests in the Lounge. 

Day 4: Blue Mountains & Sydney 

Wake to breakfast in the spectacular Blue Mountains before arriving at Sydney Central Station.
