Day 1 

BOARD THE INDIAN PACIFIC

IN SYDNEY

From Sydney, after leaving the harbour city behind, your first stop is like stepping into another world.

On the western extremity of New South Wales, Broken Hill, with its harsh arid landscape – often featured in cinema for its unforgiving, lunar-like appearance – offers a range of fascinating Off Train Excursions that highlight and celebrate how industrious locals have adapted to their incredible outback home.

OVERNIGHT: Indian Pacific (D)

INDIAN PACIFIC, ADELAIDE

After your arrival into Adelaide, you’ll have the afternoon free to explore the city ahead of your unforgettable outback adventure.

DAY 3

ADELAIDE TO WILPENA POUND

You are about to be immersed in a pocket of Australia where legends were born. Your expertly guided outback Eco Safari begins by heading north along the coast through Port Wakefield and Port Germein, and onward to the Southern Flinders Ranges to Mount Remarkable National Park.

It’s here you’ll explore 600 million year old mountain peaks and enjoy gorgeous views over Spencer Gulf before venturing further through picturesque Pichi Richi Pass and Quorn – once the starting point of the original Ghan Railway.

For the remainder of the day, expect to see an abundance of native wildlife as you pass through ghost towns heading for your accommodation at Wilpena Pound Resort.
