The Indian Pacific train

The Indian Pacific

As the name implies, The Indian Pacific links two oceans in one of the world’s longest and greatest train journeys. Traveling from Sydney to Perth, or vice versa, it covers a distance of 2,720 miles over three nights.

Starting in the spectacular Blue Mountains of New South Wales, you thread through the famous green and gold ‘Sun Belt’ of Australia, historic Broken Hill and Adelaide, before heading out into the treeless plains of the Nullarbor Plain on the world’s longest stretch of straight railway track, traveling for 299 miles without a bend. Here you pull into a remote outpost called Cook, before heading on to gold-rich Kalgoorlie and then onward to Perth, capital of Western Australia.

On every side, unique landscapes unfold and you can spot mobs of kangaroo from the comfort of the lounge. Along the route, keep your eyes peeled for the elusive Australian wedge-tailed eagle, whose massive two-meter wingspan makes it easy to spot in a clear desert sky. The train departs twice weekly.
