  • All meals and beverages onboard
  • Optional excursion in the Blue Mountains


Day 1

Depart Adelaide

A mid-morning departure from the Adelaide Parklands Terminal platform and you soon find yourself gazing at the remarkable rock formations of the Flinders Ranges. As you enjoy the rich ochre, golden and blue-green dotted landscape, you will be served a regionally inspired luncheon, accompanied by fine wines and an array of other beverages.  

The rocky scenery gives way to outback scrub as you make your way through to Broken Hill. Enjoy dinner aboard the train and post-meal socialising in the lounge before heading off to bed.

Day 2

Blue Mountains and Sydney

Awake to the splendour of the Blue Mountains. Choose to disembark the train and marvel at the expansive views and natural surrounds. Take a walk through the eucalypt forests or take the cable car for a bird’s-eye view of this World Heritage listed landscape before completing your journey on our dedicated NSW rail service (hosted by our staff) into Sydney Central Station.  

Alternatively, stay on board the Indian Pacific and travel direct to Sydney Central Station to arrive at 12.15pm.
