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 and lunch on board, enjoy an afternoon of unique touring experiences in the outback New South Wales towns of Silverton or Broken Hill.

Silverton Explorer: Take time to explore the museum, quirky galleries and Mad Max Museum while wandering around the tiny, uniquely Outback town that is Silverton before enjoying a cool drink in the iconic Silverton Hotel (low to medium intensity).

Historic Day Dream Mine: Don a miner’s helmet and enjoy both a surface and underground mine tour at this unique, remote outback mine. While this tour is not for the faint-hearted, the adventure is worth the effort exploring 120m underground and getting a true insight into a miner’s life from yesteryear. Enjoy afternoon tea of scones with a cuppa before heading back to the train (med-high intensity).

The Hart of Broken Hill:  Venture up to the Line of Lode Miner’s Memorial to pay respects to the miners before heading to the home of Pro Hart. With a glass of wine in hand, have fun creating your own masterpiece in Pro’s original studio, in the company of his daughter or son, and enjoy time to explore the gallery to take in the art of one of Australia’s most loved artists (low intensity).


Day 4


As the train journeys through the charming Adelaide Hills, enjoy your last breakfast on board before arriving into Adelaide and the end of your Great Southern train journey.
