Day 1


After setting off from Brisbane, enjoy lunch on board and a relaxing afternoon settling into your private cabin before arriving at the coastal town of Coffs Harbour. As the sun dips beneath the horizon, enjoy a unique beachside dinner where you’ll feast on local produce and fresh seafood matched with fine wines, while the waves lap at the shore nearby. After a few leisurely hours, you’ll reboard the train and set off for the night.

Day 2


Start the day with a hearty breakfast on board before setting off for a full day of Off Train Excursions. Today you get to choose your own adventure with your choice of the Hunter Valley, Newcastle or Port Stephens.

1. Hunter Valley Wine Region: Meander through the picturesque and historic vineyards of the Hunter Valley, where you can sample wines from both world-renowned brands and boutique cellar doors. Your day will include cellar door experiences, winery tours and a sumptuous lunch (low intensity).

2. Port Stephens by Land and Sea: Experience the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes and beach by 4WD van, stopping to hunt for pippies and driving to the top of a sand dune before travelling to Nelson Bay for a relaxing afternoon cruise and lunch (medium intensity).

3. Newcastle Explorer: Take in spectacular coastal views and discover Newcastle’s unique blend of old and new with a guided walking tour and historical site visit. After lunch, visit Strzelecki Lookout and a stroll along the Newcastle Memorial Walk (medium intensity).

In the evening, return to the train to enjoy a regionally inspired meal prepared onboard before retiring for the night.

Day 3


After enjoying breakfast on board as you travel through Victoria’s high country, you’ll have a choice of Off Train Experiences. Discover regional Victoria with options including wine touring and gourmet delights, visits to natural sights and charming towns. Or opt to visit cosmopolitan Melbourne and take in the soaring views from Eureka Skydeck and a tour of the National Gallery of Victoria or free time to explore the city yourself (final experiences to be confirmed).

As the train rolls into Adelaide, enjoy your last breakfast on board and the end of your Great Southern train journey.
