Indian Pacific from Perth
PERTH | ADELAIDE | SYDNEY
The iconic Indian Pacific railway tour offers one of the most impressive and indulgent ways to explore the vastness of Australia. Covering over 4300km from the Indian Ocean on Australia’s western shores to the Pacific on the east, you will watch the passing backdrop Australia’s magnificent landscapes. Travel in either direction – from the ‘harbour city’ of Sydney or the charming city of Adelaide in the east or the lovely Western Australian capital, Perth.
Your epic journey over three days and nights will take you through the picturesque and fertile Avon Valley, the dusty goldfields around Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, across the vast, empty and ancient desert of the Nullarbor Plains, and the magnificent Blue Mountains outside Sydney.
Passengers in Platinum or Gold class can enjoy free sightseeing trips en route. Explore the heritage and culture of Broken Hill, the ‘silver city’ built on mining riches; in Adelaide discover an abundance of food, wine and history. Explore remote Cook on foot and the old mining capital of Kalgoorlie.

Indian Pacific from Perth
Day 1 : Perth and Kalgoorlie
Your journey from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean begins as you pull away from the platform in Perth mid-morning. Settle into your comfortable cabin and get to know the creature comforts of life onboard. Enjoy a modern Australian lunch as you glide through the picturesque rolling hills of the Avon Valley. After a relaxing afternoon onboard, enjoy a three-course dinner prior to your late evening arrival in the wild west township of Kalgoorlie.
Day 2 : Nullarbor Plain
Awake to the spectacular expanse of the Nullarbor Plain to watch the sunrise. Be captivated by the big blue skies and ancient stillness of the desert landscape, broken only by a mob of friendly kangaroos. Waiting ahead is the charm of the once-thriving Nullarbor railway community – now ghost town – of Cook. Sit back and relax as the train continues its trek across the longest single stretch of railway in the world. Another mouth-watering dinner is followed by relaxed conversation in the lounge before a restful night’s sleep.

On arrival in elegant Adelaide, you have the choice of a walking tour (seasonal), a behind-the-scenes tour of the world famous Adelaide Oval, or a coach tour of the city sights. This evening you’ll enjoy a stop at Broken Hill, Australia’s silver capital and home to a unique artistic community.
