There is arguably no greater contrast in travel experiences than venturing inland from Australia’s capital cities. In just a few hours, journeying from the bright lights of a modern metropolis to the stirring silence of the vast outback is an experiential and emotional shift unparalleled anywhere. This holiday adventure, departing from Sydney, presents that incredible diversity, splendour and awe-inspiring scale of the outback in spectacular style aboard the Indian Pacific.

Itinerary

Day One – Board the Indian Pacific in Sydney

From Sydney, after leaving the harbour city behind, your first stop is like stepping into another world. On the western extremity of New South Wales, Broken Hill, with its harsh arid landscape – often featured in cinema for its unforgiving, lunar-like appearance – offers a range of fascinating Off Train Excursions that highlight and celebrate how industrious locals have adapted to their incredible outback home.

OVERNIGHT: Indian Pacific (D)

Day Two – Indian Pacific, Adelaide

After your arrival into Adelaide, you’ll have the afternoon free to explore the city ahead of your unforgettable outback adventure.

OVERNIGHT: Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide on Hindley (B,L)

Day Three – Adelaide to Wilpena Pound

You are about to be immersed in a pocket of Australia where legends were born. Your expertly guided outback Eco Safari begins by heading north along the coast through Port Wakefield and Port Germein, and onward to the Southern Flinders Ranges to Mount Remarkable National Park. It’s here you’ll explore 600 million year old mountain peaks and enjoy gorgeous views over Spencer Gulf before venturing further through picturesque Pichi Richi Pass and Quorn – once the starting point of the original Ghan Railway. For the remainder of the day, expect to see an abundance of native wildlife as you pass through ghost towns heading for your accommodation at Wilpena Pound Resort.

OVERNIGHT: 2 nights Wilpena Pound Resort (B,L,D)

Day Four – Wilpena Pound

Today is all about exploring an icon of the outback. Enjoy a guided walk along dry creek beds to Wangara Lookout to view spectacular Wilpena Pound. After taking in the stunning beauty of this amazing natural amphitheatre, your exploration and geological understanding of the outback continues at Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges – home to some of the oldest rock formations and fossils on earth. (B,L,D)

Day Five – Wilpena Pound to Adelaide

The final day of your Eco Safari begins on foot with an early morning bush walk to an ancient rock art site of great spiritual significance to the Adnyamathanha people. The journey back to Adelaide descends through the magnificent Southern Flinders Ranges toward the acclaimed wine country of the Clare Valley.

OVERNIGHT: 2 nights Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide on Hindley (B,L)

Day Six – Leisure Day

Today is yours to enjoy a stroll around Adelaide’s shopping district or take a tram to beautiful beachside Glenelg. (B)

Day Seven – Farewell

It’s time to check out of your accommodation after a rich and rewarding discovery of outback Australia. (B)
