The Indian Pacific Journey
Your transcontinental adventure begins in Sydney. Prepare for a journey of contrasts, from lush vineyards to vast goldmines, majestic mountains to the vast expanse of the Nullarbor, from cities of four million to ghost towns of four. Relax in the privacy of your air-conditioned private cabin or head to the Outback Explorer Lounge and enjoy a welcome drink in the company of other passengers.
As the train winds through the breathtaking Blue Mountains, explore the comforts of life onboard, get acquainted with your cabin and fellow travellers. After settling in, savour your first meal – a regionally-inspired dinner paired with all-inclusive fine wines and beverages. After dinner, join fellow guests for a late-night drink or head back to your cabin for your first night onboard.
You arrive in the ‘Silver City’ of Broken Hill as the next day begins, where you embark on a morning of Off Train Excursions to discover the mining history and artistic culture of this unique town where the streets are wide and there’s a pub on every corner. Explore this historic outback mining town where BHP Billiton has its origins and visit the Pro Hart Gallery and learn about one of Australia's most iconic artists. Back onboard the Indian Pacific breakfast awaits as you then continue your journey deep into South Australia.
Lunch is served onboard as the Indian Pacific enters the southern tip of the spectacular and ancient Flinders Ranges. Arriving in the city of Adelaide in the afternoon, you have the choice of a tour of the city, a visit to the world-famous Barossa Valley or McLaren Vale wine regions (seasonal), or a trip to the beautiful Adelaide Hills featuring the culinary delights of Hahndorf.
The first light of dawn illuminates the vast and remote emptiness of the Nullarbor as your train carries you through the longest single stretch of railway line in the world. You’ll awake to the seemingly endless expanse of the Nullarbor Plain to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast. This evening, your sense of wonder will be ignited as the train stops for you to enjoy the tranquillity of an unforgettable dinner under the brilliant desert stars in the remote and beautiful Rawlinna.
Breakfast is served as you glide through the mild skies and cool green vales of the Avon Valley on your way to Perth, arriving after an onboard lunch. As you approach your final destination, Perth, you've just completed an unforgettable adventure on one of the world's greatest railway journeys.
