Australia Rail Travel
It goes without saying that you will see more of Australia from your cabin windows than from 35,000 feet in the air. Experience all aspects of the ever-changing Australian landscape in air-conditioned style and comfort. These two great train journeys travel through some of the most spectacular regions of Australia. Share travel stories with new and old friends while taking in the scenery from windows on both sides of the carriage. With Off Train Experiences you’ll get to explore and discover more along your journey.
