    SYDNEY-PERTH ITINERARY:

    Day 1: Sydney & Blue Mountains (D)

As we wind our way through the truly breathtaking Blue Mountains, a sumptuous dinner accompanied by an array of fine wines is served. After dinner, feel free to relax with a nightcap, before heading off for a restful night’s sleep

    Day 2: Broken Hill, Barossa Valley & Adelaide Surrounds (B, L, D)

    We arrive in the ‘Silver City’ that is Broken Hill as the day begins, where you embark on your choice of Off Train Excursions that encompass the mining and cultural history or the unexpected oasis of art. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast back on the train as we make our way west. Relax and take in the views and 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 beautiful and elegant city of Adelaide in the afternoon, guests have the choice of a tour of the city or a visit to the world-famous and historic wine region of the Barossa Valley or the Adelaide Hills region including a delectable visit to Hahndorf. All tours include dinner. Reboarding the train late in the evening, feel free to share your experiences in the Lounge with old and new friends alike, before getting a comfortable nights sleep.

    Day 3: Nullarbour Plain (B, L, D)

    You’ll awaken in the seemingly endless expanse that is 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. That evening enjoy the tranquillity of dinner off the train and under the stars in the remote and beautiful Rawlinna.

    Day 4: Avon Valley & Perth (B, L)
