Get ready for a breathtaking journey as you transfer from your hotel to the Indian Pacific Train. This inspiring trip unfolds before you as you step aboard and feel the relaxation envelope you. Everything is taken care of once you're onboard, all you have to do is enjoy the ride. As the landscape passes by your window, giving you a view of Australia you can't gain in any other way, you can learn about the tailored off train experiences that await you at stops along the way. These experiences introduce you to a deeper understanding of the country and the people.

You'll also enjoy fine dining, each dish made from locally sourced ingredients and showcasing the best the culinary region has to offer, plus fine wines and other drinks of your choice, all included in your onboard experience.

Board the Indian Pacific and enjoy a relaxing trip, the rhythm of the train lulling you, as you head through the pretty Avon Valley. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the Outback Explorer Lounge with fellow travellers, and look forward to your late-night arrival into the township of Kalgoorlie, famous for gold mining, where you have the opportunity to enjoy your first off train experience.
