Royal Rail & Sail

9 January 2024 - from Sydney SOLD OUT!

from $2,390* pp twin | $3,190* solo

Royal Rail & Sail – a fun and fabulous get away over seven days. Begin by relaxing in our exclusive carriages on the NSW TrainLink XPT on the way to welcome drinks in Albury and an overnight stay.

Our journey south will continue aboard the gleaming blue and gold carriages formerly used on the ‘Spirit of Progress’. Featuring several of the original 1937 carriages, the train will whisk you to Melbourne were we’ll enjoy dinner tonight at a local restaurant.

Our Melbourne hotel is located conveniently in the CBD and next to Southern Cross Station making exploration easy.

Board the elegant Queen Elizabeth at Melbourne’s Station Pier for a glittering three night voyage to Sydney. With an entire day at sea you’ll find 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! There’s also a full day in the delightful port of Eden where you may choose to explore on your own or take an organised excursion.

Arrive back in Sydney relaxed, immersed and refreshed at the end your rail and sail adventure.
