Sydney - Adelaide - Perth
Sit back and watch Australia's timeless landscapes fly by your window on this epic train trip. Board at Sydney and hop off for whistlestop tours of Broken Hill, Adelaide and gold-rich Kalgoorlie. Or join in Perth and cut the continent the other way, from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific. Pass through the spectacular Blue Mountains, stop in the remote outpost of Cook and travel almost 310 miles (500 kilometres) through the stark Nullarbor Plain. Whatever your direction, you'll wake to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, watch fiery sunsets and fall asleep to the train's rhythmic sway.
