Day 1

Sydney and Blue Mountains

Your trans continental adventure begins as you pull away from the platform in Sydney mid-afternoon. You’ll wind your way through the truly breathtaking Blue Mountains as a sumptuous dinner accompanied by an array of fine wines is served. After dinner, relax with a nightcap, before heading off to bed.

Day 2

Broken Hill, Barossa Valley and Adelaide surrounds

You arrive in the ‘Silver City’ of Broken Hill as the day begins, where you embark on your choice of Off Train Excursions. Experience the town’s unique mining, cultural and artistic attractions. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast back on the train as you make your way west. Relax and take in the views. Before you know it, lunch is being served as the Indian Pacific enters the southern tip of the spectacular and ancient Flinders Ranges. Arriving in the city of Adelaide in the afternoon, you have the choice of a tour of the city, a visit to the world-famous Barossa Valley or McLaren Vale wine regions, or a trip to the beautiful Adelaide Hills featuring the culinary delights of Hahndorf. All tours include dinner. Re-boarding the train later in the evening, share your experiences in the lounge with old and new friends alike, before settling in for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Day 3

Nullarbor Plain

You’ll awaken in the seemingly endless expanse of the extraordinary Nullarbor Plain. Breakfast is served as you travel along the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world. Relax, read, chat or just take in the ever-changing views. This evening, enjoy the tranquillity of dinner off the train and under the stars in the remote and beautiful Rawlinna (seasonal).

Day 4

Avon Valley and Perth

Breakfast is served as you glide through the colourful patchwork of rolling hills of the Avon Valley on your way to Perth, arriving after an onboard lunch.
