Experience one of the few truly transcontinental rail journeys in the world with a voyage on board the Indian Pacific.

Part of Journey Beyond, the Indian Pacific travels across the breadth of southern Australia in incomparable style. Its storied journey 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 classic transcontinental journey takes four days and three nights, though the Indian Pacific also makes charter services for those who want to explore deeper into the bush. Throughout, there are Off Train Experiences to Adelaide and her surroundings, the Blue Mountains and Perth, so you can stretch your legs and explore the most remote corners of this inhospitable yet intensely welcoming land.

The train’s first full transcontinental journey took place in 1970. 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.
