DAY 2 | 11 Apr 2021
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. All food is included, even the delicious rack of lamb and desert lime lamington, paired with a Margaret River sauvignon blanc. As the views transform before your eyes, get ready for your first off train excursion in the wild west town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

DAY 3 | 12 Apr 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".

Beautiful Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills
DAY 4 | 13 Apr 2021
Indian Pacific

By morning, desert views give way to the rolling South Australian countryside. You’ll enjoy an entertaining stop in the beautifully designed Adelaide, renowned for arts festivals, pop-up bars, and laneway restaurants. Over lunch, watch as pastures dissolve into tough mallee scrub on approach to Broken Hill, one of Australia’s legendary outback bases.

On your last day in Sydney you could visit the former 19th-century prison on Cockatoo Island. These days it’s a venue for contemporary art installations and festivals as well as a campsite and picnic spot.

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.
