Journeys Rediscovered – Australia’s Great Rail Journeys
The entire portfolio of 2023 Journey Beyond experiences is now open for bookings!
From the moment you step aboard the legendary trains, they feel it – a spirit of adventure and a sense of something very special about to unfold.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of their 2022 rail journeys, there have been some changes:
A legendary train. An unforgettable Australian adventure through the heart of Australia from Adelaide to Darwin. There is nothing like a journey on The Ghan. In 2019, The Ghan celebrated 90 years of outback crossings. Due to popular demand, we are thrilled to announce that in 2023 The Ghan will be running double departures from April to September.
Australia’s unique summer deserves to be celebrated and that’s what a Great Southern journey is all about. In 2023 we are offering more departures than ever before, extending our season from December 2022 to February 2023.
A journey aboard the iconic Indian Pacific will whisk you between Perth, Adelaide and Sydney on a spectacular 4352km crossing in comfort and style. The length of the Indian Pacific is increasing in 2023.
