Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 5 - Perth

Arrive into Western Australia’s sunny capital city to spend the next 5 nights. Situated along the Swan River and famed for its blue skies, extraordinary setting and laid-back atmosphere, Perth is the perfect city to spend your days strolling around the many shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy the magnificent views from Kings Park, relax on the white sandy beaches, or if time permits head out of the city to enjoy the surrounding regions. From the wineries and the scenic south, to the natural wonders of the North and the coral shores of Rottnest Island, Perth’s natural playground has plenty to see and do.

Day 6 to 7 - Indian Pacific Rail

This morning travel in style on board the Indian Pacific from Perth to Adelaide. Stepping aboard the mighty Indian Pacific you will enjoy a private cabin together with all inclusive dining, beverages and a range of fascinating train excursions at key stops.

Day 8 to 10 - Adelaide

Disembark your luxury train journey this morning to spend the next 3 nights in the heart of Adelaide. Explore Adelaide’s wide leafy boulevards and spacious green parklands.

Head to the Adelaide Hills for fantastic photo opportunities, or unwind between world-class wineries in the nearby Barossa and Clare Valley.

Kangaroo Island, Australia’s third largest island situated south west of Adelaide, combines dramatic coastal scenery, interrupted beaches and an abundance of native wildlife, and is an absolute must see for those wanting to see Australia’s unique flora, fauna and birdlife.
