The Indian Pacific – Fares 2020 / 2021

When it comes to the great rail journeys of Australia, there’s nothing quite like The Indian Pacific. Going far beyond the means of regular rail travel, you simply won’t be disappointed as you sit back, relax and embrace the true Australia from the comfort of your beautiful cabin.

The Indian Pacific does the contrary, crossing from Perth to Sydney (and vice versa) through the Nullarbor Plain and Adelaide. This wondrous quest takes 4 days/3-nights and is one of the safest ways to see this unique landscape, taking you through the stunning blue mountains and the wild west of Australia.

The Indian Pacific

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 marvelously resilient wildflowers of Western Australia. With all of its variance, this is the definitive Australia.

From inside and outside your cabin, you’ll touch and be touched by the vast beauty of this magnificent country – the textures, the light, the unimaginable hues. And alighting from this iconic coast-to-coast journey, you’ll be far richer for the experience.
