Discover Train & Rail Holidays in Australia

Witness Beautiful Australian Vistas by Rail

Whether you want to travel from the Indian Pacific to the South Pacific or set off from the tropical city of Darwin down to the hot and arid centre of Adelaide – let train holidays in Australia lead the way.

Australian rail holidays are a sought-after package for those wanting to experience gorgeous views and colonial heritage from place to place, in the comfort of a first-class carriage. With Australia being such a large expanse of land, naturally, there’s so much to see and do. Australian train holidays provide a comfortable and relaxing voyage – allowing you to see those hard-to-get-to places without a worry in sight. 

Great Southern Rail offers you a big screen window to enjoy the panoramic views on your itinerary, off-train excursions throughout the trip and is complete with all-inclusive dining and journey audio commentary for a guided tour feel. First Class Holidays can tailor your rail holiday to suit your travel aspirations - contact one of our Australia travel experts today to find out how you can book a dream holiday of a lifetime.
