Description

Indian Pacific & Great Southern Trains, Gold Service Perth to Brisbane & City Stay – 8 days

Two great trains – one massive journey – across five States and a Territory!

The adventure starts when you board the legendary Indian Pacific in Perth. Spend two nights on board and take in a spectacular Nullarbor sunrise before you roll into Adelaide. In the South Australian capital, there’s three nights to discover its food, cheeky bars, arts and shopping scenes. A full day tour of the Barossa Valley is included because, let’s face it, wine-tasting at renowned wineries, a delicious lunch and learning about the stunning local region from a local guide is simply too much fun to miss.

Next comes another highlight of the holiday, boarding the Great Southern. Embark on a remarkable rail experience through Victoria, ACT and NSW en route to Queensland. See the spectacular Grampians mountain ranges and native wildlife, delve into the country’s history in Canberra and discover the picturesque coastal town of Coffs Harbour before disembarking in Brisbane.

As the landscape changes again and rich ochre sands make way for forests and farmlands, you will arrive into Adelaide in the morning and the culmination of your epic transcontinental crossing.
