Great Railway Journeys in Australia

Introduction

Travel Australia by rail and immerse yourself in the scenery from the comfort of your own luxury carriage. The country offers a variety of great railway journeys, perfectly suited for exploring its vast landscapes. From luxury Great Southern Rail voyages, to short interstate trips, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Experience luxury train travel on the Ghan railway

The Ghan takes you through the heart of Australia while travelling from Darwin to Adelaide or vice versa. It’s the perfect way to experience the changing scenes of the Outback as you travel from coast to coast. Enjoy gourmet meals prepared by professional chefs and relax in private cabin accommodation.

Travel the length of Australia on the Indian Pacific Railway

The Indian Pacific travels the longest stretch of straight railway in the world, connecting the cities of Perth and Sydney. Outside your window you’ll pass through Kalgoorlie and the Nullabor desert’s expanse, rolling farmlands, and rugged bushland of the Blue Mountains. Tantalising meals, nightcap drinks and off-train excursions will leave you with fond memories.

Sample shorter rail journeys

If you’re interested in experiencing Australia by rail but don’t want to embark on a cross-country voyage, there are also shorter rail journeys to be enjoyed. The Southern Spirit and Overland connect various cities between Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide, while the Sunlander and Kuranda Scenic Railway showcase Queensland’s east coast and rainforest.
