Perth to Adelaide

Enjoy this remarkable two night, three day journey, taking you from Perth to Adelaide.

Day 1

Depart Perth to Kalgoorlie

01-Perth

Take in your last whiff of Indian Ocean air as you step from the platform at East Perth Station onto the Indian Pacific.

The comfort of your cabin awaits as does your first onboard dining experience in the elegantly-appointed restaurant car. Reflect on the menu as you watch the suburbs of the Western Australian capital roll past your window and the verdant greens of the Avon Valley.

First stop that evening is the wild west town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, home to the staggering 3.6km wide Super Pit - an open-cut gold mine that has yielded riches 24 hours a day since 1989.

Day 2

Cook and The Nullabor

Gold_Lounge_Small_03

Upon waking, set your sights on the vast horizon beyond the window - you have arrived on the edges of the sweeping Nullarbor Plain. Big blue skies await you, the ancient stillness of the desert landscape broken only by a mob of friendly kangaroos or the occasional circling bird of prey. By the time you have refreshed and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, you'll be stepping off the train for a short stop in Cook. Once a bustling railway community, now effectively a ghost town, Cook gives new meaning to the expression "middle of nowhere".

Get a sense of the Nullarbor's intense remoteness as you wander through Cook's abandoned buildings and learn more about the town's intriguing history.

Back onboard, the beverages are cold and the welcoming atmosphere of the Outback Explorer Lounge inspires conversation and laughter. Sit back and relax as the train continues its trek across the longest single stretch of railway in the world.

Day 3

Adelaide

TasteofSouthAustraliaDay2

Looking out of your window this morning you'll notice a dramatic change in landscape as the dry tones of the Nulabour make way for the beautiful green fields and pastoral lands of South Australia.

After breakfast you'll have time to reflect on your journey before The Indian Pacific rolls into Adelaide. Here, you may wish to extend your stay with trips to the Barossa Valley or Kangaroo Island topping the to-do list.

Or stay close to the city, nibbling, sipping and munching your way through the famous Central Market, perusing the revitalised Riverbank precinct (including the updated Adelaide Oval and free Donald Bradman Exhibition), before exploring a myriad of chic laneway restaurants, bars and entertainment venues in this, Australia's City of Churches.
