Grand Rail & Sail

2 November 2022 - from Sydney SELLING FAST!

from $2,390* twin | $2,990* solo

Grand Rail & Sail – a big adventure in just six days.

Board the delightful Grand Princess at Sydney’s Circular Quay then sail from one of the most spectacular harbours in the world. You’ll have two nights and an entire day at sea taking in views of the coastline. There is so much to do aboard your biggest challenge is to decide just what not to do next. Or perhaps do nothing at all!

Our Melbourne hotel is located conveniently in the CBD and next to Southern Cross Station making exploration easy. On our included tour, you’ll see the city from an entirely different perspective as we take a mystery tour of the suburban rail lines aboard the historic electric ‘Tait’ carriages including lunch.

Our journey back north will be aboard the gleaming blue and gold carriages once used on the ‘Spirit of Progress’. Featuring several of the original 1937 carriages, the train will whisk you to Albury were we’ll enjoy farewell drinks and an overnight.

Our last day sees us join our exclusive Cruise Express heritage train bound for Sydney. Soak in the history as we have lunch at the historic Junee Railway Cafe which opened in 1885. Our final leg sees us enjoy a light dinner aboard as the train climbs through the Cullerin Ranges and Southern Highlands. A mid evening arrival at Sydney Terminal is anticipated at the end of our rail and sail adventure.
