  • Day 1 - Embark your cruise in Adelaide and set sail from 5pm.
  • Day 2 & 3 - Enjoy the next 2 days relaxing onboard as the ship sails to Albany.
  • Day 4 - Today the ship will dock from 8am to 1pm in Albany.
  • Day 5 - Disembark the ship in Fremantle today. You will be met at the port for your transfer to Perth. This afternoon check in to your hotel and enjoy the evening at leisure.
  • Day 6 & 7 - You are at leisure in Perth. Ask your travel consultant about booking a day trip. Our recommendation is a Swan River Scenic Cruise!
  • Day 8 - This morning you will be transferred to East Perth Railway Station to board the Indian Pacific.
  • Your journey from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean begins as you pull away from the platform in Perth mid-morning. Settle into your comfortable cabin and get to know the creature comforts of life onboard. Enjoy a modern Australian lunch as you glide through the picturesque rolling hills of the Avon Valley. After a relaxing afternoon onboard, enjoy a three-course dinner prior to your late evening arrival in the wild west township of Kalgoorlie.
  • Day 9 - Awake to the spectacular expanse of the Nullarbor Plain to watch the sunrise. Be captivated by the big blue skies and ancient stillness of the desert landscape, broken only by a mob of friendly kangaroos. Waiting ahead is the charm of the once-thriving Nullarbor railway community – now ghost town – of Cook. Sit back and relax as the train continues its trek across the longest single stretch of railway in the world. Another mouth-watering dinner is followed by relaxed conversation in the lounge before a restful night’s sleep.
  • Day 10 - On arrival in elegant Adelaide, you have the choice of a walking tour (seasonal), a behind-the-scenes tour of the world famous Adelaide Oval, or a coach tour of the city sights. This evening you’ll enjoy a stop at Broken Hill, Australia’s silver capital and home to a unique artistic community.
  • Day 11 - Wake in the picturesque Blue Mountains. See the majestic Three Sisters at Echo Point and the views at Jamison Valley before completing your journey on our chartered NSW rail service (fully hosted by our staff) into Sydney Central Station. Alternatively, stay on board the Indian Pacific to travel directly to Sydney.
