A journey beyond words.
Travel in style as you journey to some of the most magical places our country has to offer. Sip champagne in a carriage crossing the continent, swing in a hammock as you watch whales breech over Ningaloo reef, watch the sunset from your own pontoon right on the Great Barrier Reef or admire the Red Centre in all its glory with a scenic flight over Uluru. There's an unforgettable experience waiting for everyone. When you book a rail journey in 2023, you can extend your experience with a city stay, gourmet adventure, or outback exploration, diving deeper into all Australia has to offer.

Signature Rail Expeditions
You've heard the names, The Ghan
, Indian Pacific
, Great Southern
and The Overland
, but have you experienced the magic? A journey by rail is no everyday journey. From the moment you step aboard, the frantic pace of day-to-day life fades away and a new kind of world opens up, one that allows you to truly escape. As the train gently rolls through ancient landscapes, senses are reawakened as you discover flavours, colours and details that far exceed expectations. With every moment considered and everything included, all you have to do is sit back and take it all in.
Kick back on the high seas with a scenic cruise. For fine dining and cityscape views, then Darwin Harbour Cruises and Journey Beyond Cruise Sydney offer legendary sunset cruises to gaze and graze the night away.
