Indian Pacific

a legendary rail journey

NEW: 2025 dates & availability | NEW: cabin category (Gold Premium) | NEW: itinerary  

A fabled rail journey traversing Australia and linking the West Coast to the East aboard the iconic and luxurious Indian Pacific.

Named for the two oceans the train connects, the Indian Pacific travels between Perth and Sydney on a spectacular 4,352km crossing. This is one of the longest, continuous train journeys in the world and there is no better way to see the spectacular interior of our great country.

This epic transcontinental crossing between the Indian and Pacific oceans entered service on 23 February 1970 as a joint operation between the Railway Departments of NSW, South Australia, Western Australia and the Commonwealth. Since then passengers have been able to experience and appreciate the incredibly rich diversity in landscape all in one continuous rail journey.

Follow in the footsteps of those that dared to venture beyond the city limits – the legendary adventurers, goldrush prospectors and bush pioneers who forged their lives in Australia’s spectacular yet unforgiving interior.
