Indian Pacific Explorer

Indian Pacific Explorer

One of the great Australian rail journeys, this 4,352 km journey traverses the breadth of Australia between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Follow in the footsteps of those who have ventured beyond the city limits to see a land of contrasts: the heights of the Blue Mountains, the barren expanse of the Nullarbor, lush vineyards and vast gold mines. Arriving in Perth, we linger longer to explore the scenery and tastes.
