Your holiday adventure kicks off in Sydney when you board the new Pacific Explorer to discover her array of bars, pubs and live music venues while you dine alfresco on the pool deck.

Your first port of call is Melbourne known for its hole in the wall cafes, coffee houses and vintage fashion shops. Take a stroll at the Royal Botanic Gardens with its peaceful lakes and majestic trees. At nearby Yarra Valley, you can taste some world-class wines and locally grown produce.

As Pacific Explorer makes its way to Adelaide, you can spend your sea day with an indulgent massage therapy at Elemis Sea Spa.

When you arrive at Adelaide, a city known for its food, wine and culture, make a beeline for the 19th century Central Market filled with amazing local fresh produce, then head to the Art Gallery of South Australia to take in the state’s natural and artistic heritage.

At Albany, you will be blown away by its family-friendly beaches, soft white sand and amazing turquoise waters. The first European settlers landed in WA’s Albany and the city’s museums reflect its rich history.

At Fremantle, you will disembark Pacific Explorer and overnight in Perth with its lush gardens, vibrant art and amazing culinary scene before boarding the iconic Indian Pacific for a rail adventure of a lifetime.

The Indian Pacific, on the other hand, offers a transcontinental rail journey from coast to coast following in the footsteps of bush pioneers and gold rush adventurers to discover the barren natural beauty of Australia’s unforgiving outback. Sit back and enjoy sumptuous dinners with premium wine amidst a convivial atmosphere as the train speeds along. After dinner, you will retire to your beautifully appointed cabin to be surrounded by old world romance with crisp sheets, fluffy towels and complimentary bath amenities.

On your journey, you will relish several off-train experiences and short stops in Kalgoorlie, Rawlinna, Cook, Adelaide and the Blue Mountains (optional).

Watch mesmerised by the changing scene from the barren expanse of the Nullabor Plain, the desert landscape to the majestic Blue Mountains. You will dine like kings on amazing dishes washed down with fine wine. When the train rolls in at Adelaide, you will go on an excursion to Broken Hill and stop by the Miners’ Memorial which will reveal the stark reality of what it was like working in the gold mines.

As the Indian Pacific winds its way through the Blue Mountains, you will end your amazing holiday in Sydney.
