Arrive into Western Australia’s sunny capital city to spend the next 5 nights. Situated along the Swan River and famed for its blue skies, extraordinary setting and laid-back atmosphere, spend your days strolling around the many shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy the magnificent views from Kings Park, relax on the white sandy beaches, or if time permits head out of the city to enjoy the surrounding regions.

Stepping aboard the mighty Indian Pacific in Gold service you will enjoy a private cabin together with all inclusive dining, beverages and a range of fascinating train excursions at key stops. Sit back and watch Australia’s great Outback unfold as you pass through remote mining towns and the Nullarbor Desert, before arriving in the picturesque city of Adelaide.

Day 8 - Adelaide
Disembark your luxury train journey this morning to spend the next 3 nights in the heart of Adelaide. Explore Adelaide’s wide leafy boulevards and spacious green parklands.

Head to the Adelaide Hills for fantastic photo opportunities, or unwind between world-class wineries in the nearby Barossa and Clare Valley.

Day 11 - Kangaroo Island
This morning head across to Kangaroo Island for a 2 day adventure. Kangaroo Island, Australia’s third largest island situated south west of Adelaide, combines dramatic coastal scenery, interrupted beaches and an abundance of native wildlife, and is an absolute must see for those wanting to see Australia’s unique flora, fauna and birdlife. Enjoy two days of touring, including a visit to the Koala Sanctuary, a stop at Seal Bay to see the sea lions, the Wildlife Park, Admirals Arch and much more, before making your way back to Adelaide for 3 nights.

Sit back and relax on board the famous Indian Pacific, continuing you journey across Australia as you travel between Adelaide and Sydney.
