Journey on board the magnificent Indian Pacific for an unforgettable transcontinental journey to Perth, where you’ll disembark for a hotel stay, followed by a stay in the picturesque Margaret River region.

Climb on board the magnificent Indian Pacific for your transcontinental voyage to Perth, following the path of bush pioneers, gold rush prospectors and legendary adventurers. This is one of the world’s finest coast to coast crossings, on the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world.

Encased in luxury, you’ll savour all-inclusive dining in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant, relax in your private cabin with en-suite and off train excursions as you steam across the country. Marvel at the ever-changing scenery from the lush eucalyptus forests of the majestic Blue Mountains, to the harsh barren landscapes and the raw beauty of the Nullarbor Plain before arriving at your final destination, Perth, where you’ll disembark for a three-night hotel stay.

Facing the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, it’s a place that makes the most of its coastal location and is brimming with cultural treats and historical attractions. During your stay you’ll get to explore with ease as a half day Perth and Fremantle tour is included. Discover some of the city’s major attractions nestled within the refreshed Perth CBD, including the Western Australian Cricket Ground, Kings Botanic Gardens and Millionaire’s Row, one of the city’s wealthiest suburbs. In Fremantle you’ll find a spirited city renowned for its eclectic mix of arty residents, as well as streets buzzing with buskers, quirky boutiques and trendy cafes. Here you can sample a craft beer from one of many microbreweries and find one-off shopping opportunities with original artworks and unique gifts.

Leaving Perth behind you’ll travel to the Margaret River region for a three-night stay, famed for its wineries, beaches and breweries. While here you’ll enjoy a wonderful wine tasting and lunch experience at the famed Voyager Estate. Relax in the Wine Room and taste through Voyager Estate’s latest releases and museum vintages of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, before moving into the restaurant for a four-course wine paired lunch. Each dish is inspired by the wines while celebrating pristine local produce.

Welcome aboard the Indian Pacific

Experience one of the few truly transcontinental rail journeys in the world with a voyage on board the Indian Pacific service, which travels across the breadth of southern Australia in incomparable style. Part of Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions, the Indian Pacific speeds from coast to coast on a storied journey that follows in the footsteps of bush pioneers, gold rush greed, and famous adventurers who forged to discover the barren natural beauty of Australia’s famously unforgiving outback.

The dream of a transcontinental rail service began in the 1890s, but it was not until 1969 that an uninterrupted rail track linked the Indian Ocean in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east. The train’s first full transcontinental journey took place on 23 February 1970, when more than 10,000 people welcome the historic train to the city of Perth. Today, the 774-metre-long train travels the 4,350 kilometres between Sydney and Perth in approximately 65 hours. It is instantly recognisable by its bold wedge-tailed eagle emblem.
