Expressions of Interest


Journey Beyond is a dynamic experienced-based tourism business. Our main purpose is to share the special places in which we operate and create and shape lasting memories for all our guests. Our Rail Division, previously known as Great Southern Rail (“GSR”) operates Australia’s iconic rail journeys, The Ghan, Indian Pacific, The Overland and our new addition to the fleet, The Great Southern – launching in December this year from Adelaide to Brisbane.
High-quality entertainment plays an important role in delivering on our purpose to create lasting memories for our guests. Live performances that provide a ‘sense of place’ feature in many of our destinations, from train station platforms, off-train excursions and on-board entertainment.
The Indian Pacific entertainment schedule comprises a solo artist or duo that performs on and off the train throughout its journey from Sydney to Perth and back to Sydney. Performances vary from intimate (playing guests in each carriage) to epic (singing under the stars in the outback at Rawlinna) and everything in between.
This is a contracted role via an external supplier, reporting to Journey Beyond’s Entertainment Director and General Manager of Guest Experiences (Rail Expeditions).
