The 2019/20 season, on sale from Monday 16 July, marks a new era for Australian rail holidays, unlocking the breadth and diversity of the continent’s most remarkable experiences.
In 21 carefully curated itineraries, guests can explore beyond the tracks combining their rail adventure with other unforgettable Australian experiences including swimming with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef, flying over Lake Eyre, admiring Kakadu’s waterfalls and wining and dining on Kangaroo Island.
Step off The Ghan and get lost in ancient storytelling in the Red Centre or enjoy a luxurious stay at Wolgan Valley having travelled on the Indian Pacific. Alternatively, navigate the Australian coastline on a cruise ship or float over Alice Springs in a hot air balloon – our new holidays take you across sea, skies and land to celebrate Australia’s awe-inspiring diversity.
The 2019/20 holidays collection is fully integrated and available for all budgets, featuring overnight stays through to 21-night expeditions.
While holidays deliver the scope to explore more of what Australia has to offer, our epic transcontinental rail journeys are also available to book independently. Celebrating The Ghan’s 90th anniversary and the Indian Pacific’s 50th anniversary during the 2019/20 season, these iconic journeys offer an all-inclusive holiday on the tracks featuring gourmet food and wine and Off Train Excursions for unrivalled access into the heart of Australia.
New City Stops provide the flexibility to extend your rail holiday with accommodation and touring options in Adelaide, Sydney, Darwin, Melbourne, Alice Springs and Perth.
This season, embark not only a legendary train adventure but an Australian holiday that embraces much, much more.
