Travelling the 4,352km (2,698 miles) between Perth and Sydney, a journey on Indian Pacific is one of the world’s great rail adventures. Departing Perth, the train climbs through the scenic Avon valley and into Western Australia’s expansive wheat belt, before arriving into the city of Kalgoorlie. Continue through the vast treeless plain of the Nullarbor desert, along the world’s longest straight stretch of railway track, then on to Adelaide and Sydney.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
