Australia by Train

It’s north to south, east to west of ever-changing landscapes, culture and people. While there are many ways to see it, there’s only one way to do it with ease and in comfort. That’s the fabulous fun of rail travel, where everything comes together in a theatre-like performance.

Onboard, the stage is set as your backdrop whistles by. Familiar and friendly service leads the way, with every moment another glorious memory in this spectacular show – the food, the cabins, the Outback Explorer Lounge, the friends you make, the Off Train Experiences, the sunrises and sunsets, did we mention the food?

It’s a journey of truly epic proportions and it’s made easy with Journey Beyond.

Journey Managers are responsible for making your experience exploring Australia by Train one to remember. They’ll guide you across Australia with their knowledge of the train, passion for the journey and amazing hospitality. During your journey, they’ll take the opportunity, to get to know you, so we’d love to share a little bit about them with you too!  Aimee-Rose is one of our fabulous Journey Managers on board The Ghan. Six years ago, Aimee-Rose returned from a stint in England and donned an Akubra, starting her new career on train. Originally from South Australia’s Barossa Valley, Aimee-Rose is no stranger to beautiful landscapes – and fine wines 🍷 Despite travelling these routes regularly, Aimee-Rose says, “Seeing the countryside across Australia is incredible. It never gets old.” 🚂  #AustraliabyTrain #JourneyBeyondRail #TheGhan #TheGhanExpedition #JourneyManager #IndianPacific #GreatSouthern
On the fringes of Australia’s biggest sheep stations, you’ll find Rawlinna – a little outpost on the Nullarbor Plain. By car, Rawlinna is a five hour trip from the nearest big town, Kalgoorlie. The Rawlinna Station is home to up to 80,000 sheep spread across 2.5 million acres. To put that into perspective, one paddock alone takes 8 hours to muster by plane.  During the cooler months guests on the Indian Pacific Sydney to Perth journey will be invited to disembark to partake in drinks, canapes served around a bonfire under the wide Nullarbor skies. In the warmer months, take it up a notch and enjoy dining under the stars – a unique outback dining experience like no other! ✨  Book your 2025 journey on the Indian Pacific today.  #AustraliabyTrain #JourneyBeyondRail #IndianPacific #WATheDreamState #WesternAustralia #Rawlinna @westernaustralia
