Top End Explorer - Expedition

Ready yourself for an incredible one-of-a-kind experience that will take you to some of the most captivating parts of Australia in luxury.

Beginning in Darwin, your journey starts by exploring the heart of the city and beyond, travelling aboard the Darwin Big Bus Tour to explore the landmarks and scenery of Darwin including a day spent at Litchfield National Park Waterfalls of picturesque forests and lush green surrounds.

Then, for an experience of a lifetime, board The Ghan Expedition, taking in the ever-changing landscape and impressive views of Outback Australia. Tantalise your tastebuds with culinary wonders that are included in your fare. See the magnificent Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge and explore Alice Springs, as part of the included Off Train Excursions including an authentic outback BBQ dining experience beneath a canopy of stars. Your next day’s stop is at Coober Pedy, a town like no other and where half the population lives underground. You too will venture underground for lunch in a working mine before being taken to view the breathtaking Breakaways landscape.

From the ancient sandstone cliffs of Katherine Gorge, to camel treks through Australia’s red centre or to the iconic Adelaide’s Central Markets to taste South Australia’s best eats, you will experience more of Australia on this great train journey.

A Taste of Western Australia

Explore the best of the west then board the Indian Pacific for the trip of a lifetime.

Discover Western Australia’s beauty before crossing the country on the Indian Pacific with this six-night package delivering the best in food, wine and landscapes. Start your journey in Perth where your first stop will be the pristine Rottnest Island, home to long sandy stretches, secluded bays and the very friendly quokka.

Having immersed yourself in Rottnest’s charm, it’s time to explore further afield and venture to Western Australia’s south coast. Visit Busselton to see its iconic jetty and then onto Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse that overlooks the expanse of the Indian Ocean. Next, Margaret River is yours to explore and lunch will be at one of the region’s oldest breweries and include local produce, wine, beer and cider tastings.

Back in Perth, you’ll board the Indian Pacific to begin your transcontinental journey from coast to coast. You’ll cross the Nullarbor in the luxury of your Gold Service cabin while meal-times will impress with regionally-inspired food and wine. Included Off Train Excursions at Kalgoorlie, Adelaide, Broken Hill and the Blue Mountains give you an opportunity to step off and explore the regions the train travels through. As you arrive into Sydney, you will have travelled more than 4000 kilometres across Australia and made enough memories to last a lifetime.
