Travel back to the 1960s on a vintage “slow rail” adventure!

The Southern Aurora was once the darling of luxury Australia rail travel. Now her carriages have been lovingly restored to their full 1960s glory as part of the new Aurora Australis.

These unique, all-inclusive rail holidays will take you along freight lines to destinations few passenger trains will ever visit, with a fare that covers an incredible range of rural tours and experiences. For extra comfort, the train is stabled each night (sometimes at historic stations and rail museums) to ensure a good night’s sleep.

Travelling solo? Book a single cabin for the same price as twin share!
