Traversing the breadth of Australia by train, you’ll pass through some of this country’s most spectacular terrains, famous cities, historic towns and well-known landmarks.

This provides the perfect opportunity to gain new insights into the people, culture and geographical wonders that shape this great land. Ironically one of the most rewarding aspects of a holiday on the Indian Pacific is getting off the beaten track.

Out West you can take in all of Perth’s major attractions, from the beautiful upper reaches of the Swan River to the Kings Park Botanical Gardens along with an introductory tour of Perth itself. You’ll visit Nambung National Park, home of the Pinnacles Desert with its imposing mystical limestone pillars.

Steeped in Australian history and home of the late artist Pro Hart, Broken Hill makes a great place to dismount and visit several iconic locations. And further South in Adelaide, you’ll make your way from the magnificent St. Peter’s Cathedral past the newly revamped Adelaide Oval to the bustling Central Market where you’ll find exceptional wine and produce from the famed Barossa Valley region.

To Sydney! From a coffee cruise on the most famous of harbours to an action packed day of sightseeing in the city, this is one trip you may want to pack a little extra shopping money for.

Highlights & inclusions

Stepping aboard the mighty Indian Pacific, you’ll feel a great sense of anticipation as this unforgettable Australian adventure begins to unfold. Whether you’re journeying from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific or the other way round, you’ll be making your way across the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world.

This is a journey defined by contrast, encompassing the towering majesty of the Blue Mountains to the barren expanse of the Nullabor and every goldmine, ghost town and grapevine in between. Outside your window, the landscape shifts over and over, revealing hidden secrets, from long abandoned homesteads of the Nullarbor to the marvellously resilient wildflowers of Western Australia. With all of its variance, this is the definitive Australia.

From inside and outside your cabin, you’ll touch and be touched by the vast beauty of this magnificent country – the textures, the light, the unimaginable hues. And alighting from this iconic coast-to-coast journey, you’ll be far richer for the experience.
