Day 1

Perth, Avon Valley and Kalgoorlie

Your journey from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean begins as you pull away from the platform in Perth mid-morning. Enjoy a superb, modern Australian lunch as you glide through the picturesque rolling hills of the Avon Valley. Take in the views and perhaps a glass of fine wine before indulging in a three course dinner prior to your late night arrival in the wild west township of Kalgoorlie. Here you will enjoy an Off Train Excursion and gain an insight into the town’s history before retiring to the comfort of your cabin.

Day 2

Nullarbor Plain

Awake to the spectacular expanse of the Nullarbor Plain before watching the sunrise. A selection of regionally inspired dishes from the brunch menu is yours to choose as an ever-changing landscape passes by your window and you reflect on the harsh, remote but captivating beauty of the region. Waiting ahead are the charms of the once thriving community -now ghost town -of Cook. Another mouth-watering dinner is followed by relaxed conversation in the lounge before a restful night’s sleep takes you to the graceful and picturesque city of Adelaide.

Day 3

Adelaide, Flinders Ranges

You have the choice of a city walking tour (seasonal), a behind the scenes tour of the world-famous Adelaide Oval, or a coach tour of the city sights. Back aboard the train, the journey continues while in the distance the magnificent Flinders Ranges pass by and the rugged, rocky landscape gives way to outback scrub.

Day 4

Blue Mountains and Sydney

Wake in the spectacular Blue Mountains. Choose to take in the beauty of this World Heritage listed landscape via the scenic walkways and cable car. See the majestic Three Sisters at Echo Point and the views at Jamies on Valley 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.

Blue Mountains / Sydney

This World Heritage-listed area marks your final Off Train Experience before arriving in Sydney. Say goodbye to the Indian Pacific after breakfast, to travel deep into the mountains, known for their soaring sandstone ridges wrapped in native flora. Whether visiting Scenic World and experiencing the Scenic Skyway, Scenic Cableway and Scenic Railway, or taking a guided walk, the views are nothing short of spectacular. Both experiences end at Echo Point Lookout, perched on the edge of the escarpment in Katoomba, in time for a light lunch.

The last leg of the journey is on a chartered New South Wales rail service into Sydney Central Station, with the Indian Pacific crew hosting. If guests prefer to arrive in Sydney earlier, there’s the option to forgo the Blue Mountains and stay on board the Indian Pacific, travelling directly to Sydney Central Station and arriving before lunch.

Arriving into the harbour city, the journey concludes, but the memories will live on
