Experts in Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific

Explore Australia by Rail

With a variety of routes around the states, choose from the iconic Ghan that takes you from Adelaide to Darwin through spectacular scenery of the rugged outback and mountain ranges. Alternatively, board the Indian Pacific to travel between the sparkling waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, journeying from Sydney on the East Coast, across to Perth on the West. With the ability to stop off en route, make sure you spend a few days in bustling Adelaide or wine tasting in the Barossa Valley before continuing on your trip.

On the other hand, if you want to witness the sandy beaches and iconic surf of Queensland, join a trip up or down the East Coast of Australia with Queensland Rail. Voted as one of the world’s top 25 rail journeys, The Sunlander is a popular option for those wanting to discover the Great Barrier Reef, Whitsundays and cities of Brisbane and Cairns.
