Stepping aboard the mighty Indian Pacific, you’ll feel a great sense of
anticipation as this unforgettable Australian adventure begins to unfold.
Whether you’re journeying from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific or the
other way round, you’ll be making your way across the longest stretch of
straight railway track in the world. This is a journey defined by contrast,
encompassing the towering majesty of the Blue Mountains to the barren
expanse of the Nullarbor and every goldmine, ghost town and grapevine
in between. Outside your window, the landscape shifts over and over,
revealing hidden secrets, from long abandoned homesteads of the
Nullarbor to the marvellously resilient wildflowers of Western Australia.
You’ll be impressed by the vast beauty of this glorious country – the
textures, the light, the unimaginable hues.
Experience the golden age of train travel with Great Southern Rail. Journey aboard the Indian Pacific and spoil your senses with gourmet food, spectacular views and five star service. Last year marked the 100th anniversary of the railroad’s creation, so there’s never been a better time to indulge in a trip which is as much about the journey as it is the destination.
Beginning in Sydney and culminating four days (and three nights) later in Perth, The Indian Pacific covers a whopping 4,352km, making it Australia’s longest rail journey. The route can also be booked in reverse, either way you’re travelling from coast to coast, passing the Blue Mountains, Adelaide and the barren expanse of the Nullarbor, weaving from gum tree to goldmine, ghost town and grape vine.
While you’re making your way across the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world, the terrain will change from lush rainforests and rolling green hills to barren red desert flecked with rusty tin sheds. You’ll be passing towns with a population of four, lush valleys with picturesque creeks and golden coastlines whipped by the ocean. This is a truly diverse train journey, where no two days offer the same two views.
The train averages 85km/hour, which might sound slow, but once you’re chugging along the rail track, you’ll find it’s the perfect pace to absorb every view.
