Iconic Rail Journeys of Australia

Two of the world’s great rail experiences, they evoke a frontier spirit, a legendary connection to the land, and travelling on them is a moving and unforgettable life experience.

There is no place in the world like Australia, and the romance of rail offers a unique and memorable way to explore its length and breadth. Showcasing the diverse landscapes, sights, flavours, wildlife, climates and human endeavour that define Australia in the imagination, these transcontinental journeys offer exceptional scale, range and significance.

Venture further with curated, powerfully enriching journey extensions that capture the nation in all of its guises: from Outback, to Food & Wine, Nature, Indigenous, Beaches, Adventure, Rail & Sail, and City Stops.

As The Ghan turns 90 and the Indian Pacific approaches half a century of epic transcontinental crossings, their exciting evolution as centrepieces of a new era of experiential travel is only just beginning.
