12 Day Adventure

Day 1: Arrive in Adelaide

G'day and welcome to Adelaide!  Stay in Adelaide for 3 nights.

Day 2-3: Adelaide, South Australia

  • Enjoy your time in Adelaide!
  • On day 3, you have a scheduled half-day Adelaide Hills & Hahndorf tour!  Take in the spectacular views of the city and the coastline - a perfect photo opportunity. Wind your way through the Adelaide Hills villages of Crafers, Stirling, Aldgate and Bridgewater before arriving at Beerenberg Farm Shop, where there is time to taste and purchase from their full range of products. Then it's on to Hahndorf, Australia's oldest German Settlement.
  • Spend the afternoon exploring the main street of Hahndorf where you can sample local produce, check out the local arts and crafts before enjoying afternoon tea or a traditional German beer tasting at the very popular Hahndorf Inn with expert commentary by local Driver/Guide.
Day 4: Transfer to The Indian Pacific

  • Head to the terminal to board the Indian-Pacific Train.
  • A mid-morning departure from the Adelaide Parklands Terminal platform and you soon find yourself gazing at the remarkable rock formations of the Flinders Ranges.
  • The rocky scenery gives way to outback scrub as you make your way to Broken Hill in the early evening. With its harsh arid landscape – often featured in cinema for its unforgiving, lunar-like appearance – Broken Hill offers a range of fascinating Off Train Excursions that highlight and celebrate how industrious locals have adapted to their incredible outback home.
  • Overnight on the Indian-Pacific Rail to Sydney
Day 5: Sydney

  • Awake to the splendour of the Blue Mountains. Disembark the train and marvel at the expansive views and natural surrounds. Take a walk through the eucalypt forests or take the cable car for a bird’s-eye view of this World Heritage listed landscape before completing your journey on our dedicated NSW rail service (hosted by our staff) into Sydney Central Station.
