Perth, the capital of Western Australia and famed for being the most isolated city in world, is where you’ll begin your holiday. During your five night hotel stay you’ll relish the opportunity to explore this fabulous city both at your leisure and through a series of deluxe tours included for you.

Perth is yours to enjoy at leisure, walk amongst the breathtaking array of colourful flora in the botanical gardens at Kings Park, indulge in a wine-tasting and vineyard experience at Mandoon Estate, or head up the Bell Tower, an iconic attraction that offers dramatic views.

As part of your holiday, you’ll enjoy a 48hr Hop-On-Hop-Off bus pass. Sit back and relax as you journey around the Central Business District and listen to the commentary of the history of the Swan River, through to the modern marvels of the latest developments and up to the natural beauty of Kings Park.

A further tour will take you to Fremantle, at the mouth of the Swan River, known for its markets and arts culture. Enjoy a scenic river cruise before tucking into a fresh seafood lunch at the Fishing Boat Harbour before delving into the history of Fremantle Prison.

Your final day of touring this sunny city takes you to beautiful Rottnest Island where you’ll embrace some of its most spectacular highlights including the Wadejemup Lighthouse, the rugged West End and the famous quokkas.

Following your hotel stay, you’ll board the magnificent Indian Pacific for your transcontinental voyage to Sydney, following the path of bush pioneers, gold rush prospectors and legendary adventurers. This is one of the world’s finest coast to coast crossings, on the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world. Encased in luxury, you’ll savour all-inclusive dining in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant, relax in your private cabin with en-suite and off-train excursions as you steam across the country. Marvel at the ever-changing scenery from harsh barren landscapes and the raw beauty of the Nullarbor Plain to the lush eucalyptus forests of the majestic Blue Mountains, before arriving at your final destination, Sydney, where you’ll disembark.

Rottnest Island

Rottnest Island is an awe-inspiring paradise enclave that sits just offshore from Perth in Western Australia. Surrounded by powder-white sand beaches, shimmering azure waters and deserted coves, the island is also considered a protected nature reserve. Spend some time on the island to explore its history, soak in the stunning sights and meet the friendly-faced quokka.

Perth - Embark Indian Pacific

Beginning in East Perth, be greeted by exceptional staff as you embark the Indian Pacific for your cross-country adventure. Your comfortable cabin awaits as does the elegantly appointed restaurant car.

Day 7.jpg
DAY 7 - 8 | 2 - 3 Aug 2021
Indian Pacific

As you wake, you’ll find yourself on the edges of the sweeping Nullarbor Plain. Vast horizons and big blue skies await and the ancient stillness of the desert landscape is only broken by a mob of friendly kangaroos or the occasional circling bird of prey. After a leisurely breakfast, you'll step off the train for a short stop in Cook. Once a bustling railway community, now effectively a ghost town, Cook gives new meaning to the expression "middle of nowhere".

Itinerary Day 9.jpg
DAY 9 | 4 Aug 2021
Sydney - Disembark Indian Pacific

Watch in awe as your train snakes through the wonderous beauty of the Blue Mountains, cloaked in eucalypt forests and blessed with rare fauna. Take the off-train excursion to gaze in admiration at the Three Sisters rock formation and overlook the beautiful Jamison valley, filled with luscious eucalyptus trees and stunning views, before heading to Sydney. Then sit back and relish your last few hours of this unforgettable journey.

Welcome aboard the Indian Pacific

Experience one of the few truly transcontinental rail journeys in the world with a voyage on board the Indian Pacific service, which travels across the breadth of southern Australia in incomparable style. Part of Great Southern Rail, the Indian Pacific speeds from coast to coast on a storied journey that follows in the footsteps of bush pioneers, gold rush greed, and famous adventurers who forged to discover the barren natural beauty of Australia’s famously unforgiving outback.

Know the Facts

The dream of a transcontinental rail service began in the 1890s, but it was not until 1969 that an uninterrupted rail track linked the Indian Ocean in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east. The train’s first full transcontinental journey took place on 23 February 1970, when more than 10,000 people welcome the historic train to the city of Perth. Today, the 774-metre-long train travels the 4,350 kilometres between Sydney and Perth in approximately 65 hours. It is instantly recognisable by its bold wedge-tailed eagle emblem.

Carriages

On average, the train comprises some 30 different carriages, including guest cabins, crew quarters, restaurant cars, lounges and power vans. The length of the train is around 774 metres, so you’ll have plenty of space to stretch your legs on board.

Cabins

The accommodation on board is extremely luxurious, with different levels of opulence depending on what you desire from your escape. The modern cabin suites are hewn from wood and have all the comforts required to ensure you have a restful journey, and contrast beautifully with the elegant Edwardian décor of the dining cars.

Food

Your dining options depend on the level of service you have opted for, but all meals take place in the beautifully appointed Queen Adelaide restaurant car or the Platinum Club. Menus change frequently and feature Australian cuisine and more international flavours, plus sumptuous local wines.
