Your Insider Guide to Iconic Australian Rail Journeys

A journey aboard one of Australia’s long-distance trains is rail travel like you’ve never experienced before. Nothing gives you an understanding of the vast expanses of open land on the world’s largest island like traversing the full length and breadth of it. From the moment you step aboard one of these iconic Australian rail journeys, you feel a spirit of adventure and a sense that something very special is about to unfold.

The Ghan

Regarded as one of the world’s greatest rail journeys, The Ghan allows access to parts of Australia that no other holiday can. Taking you through the monumental Australian outback, this all-inclusive train journey ventures between Adelaide in South Australia and Darwin in the Northern Territory. Travelling through the red heart of Australia over three to four days, guests relax in elegantly appointed cabins as they take in the stunning outback scenery, and socialise over lavish, regionally inspired meals, while sipping locally produced fine wines.

When the train stops, the adventure begins, with a huge range of Off Train Experiences included, culminating in a memorable journey that will move you in every sense of the word.

The Indian Pacific

Four days, three states, two oceans and one train – the Indian Pacific isn’t just any train journey, it’s an escape from day-to-day life, an adventure of a lifetime and one of the best ways to experience Australia’s awe-inspiring landscape.

A journey aboard the iconic Indian Pacific whisks you between Perth, Adelaide and Sydney in comfort and style. Witness the majestic Blue Mountains in New South Wales, the fertile wine-producing countryside of South Australia, the barren beauty of the Nullarbor Plain, and Western Australia’s rolling hills and winding streams.

Sit back for an epic transcontinental four days as you make your way from one ocean to another, including travelling along the world’s longest stretch of straight railway.

The Great Southern

Taking in rugged coastlines, sun-kissed beaches and majestic rainforests, the Great Southern journey is like no other. Over three to four days, the Great Southern sweeps through one of the most diverse corners of the nation – venturing from the lush folds of South Australia’s Adelaide Hills to the rugged Grampians mountain range in Victoria past the aqua shores of the New South Wales north coast before continuing on to Brisbane.

This is the ultimate way to experience the cities and small towns in the region, while indulging in spectacular scenery, fascinating Off Train Experiences, and world-class hospitality on the newly fashioned Great Southern. Please note, the Great Southern runs in December and January only.

These epic rail journeys are suitable for groups, couples and solo travellers. They are extremely popular, so we recommend planning your trip one to two years in advance. Contact us at sales@ANZCRO.co.uk for an itinerary.
