Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1 – Perth to Kalgoorlie

Depart Perth this morning. This sunny, beach-loving city is closer to Singapore than Sydney and an important gateway to Asia.

Later tonight. Arrive into Kalgoorlie where the train will halt overnight
 

Day 2 – Depart Kalgoorlie

This morning, get off in Australia's gold capital just in time for a night tour. See the floodlit superpit goldmine, more than 400 metres deep and over 3.3 kilometres long, with mammoth machinery that looks like Tonka trucks in the distance. Hear stories of bandits and brothels, fortune and hardships as you wander past the grand old pubs of Hannan Street. It was named after Irishman Paddy Hannan who first discovered the region’s riches in 1893. Depart Kalgoorlie in the afternoon for Cook.

You can wander one of the world's most isolated outposts when the train pulls in briefly to Cook. Once a thriving railway settlement, Cook now only has a handful of residents and sits in the middle of the vast treeless Nullarbor, around 1,500 kilometres from Perth.

 

Day 3 – Arrival Adelaide.

The first things you’ll notice as you pull into Australia’s festival city are the colonial buildings surrounded by superb parklands, beaches and hills. Check out the stone buildings lining North Terrace and the Rundle Street cafe scene. You’ll also whiz past Montefiore Hill, Colonel Light's Lookout, Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground and Lake Torrens.

 

Pull into Broken Hill early this evening and marvel at the clear light and beautiful colours that have drawn many artists to this area. This former mining town known as Silver City sits amidst distinctive desert landscapes and an oasis of lakes. Soak up the city on a one-hour whistle-stop tour. Learn about the rich mining history and visit the Royal Flying Doctor Base. See the Living Desert Sculptures and one of the impressive art galleries.

Leave Broken Hill later this evening.

 

Day 4 – Arrival Sydney

Watch the sandstone cliffs, forested valleys, escarpments and waterfalls of the Blue Mountains morph into the more arid landscapes of the New South Wales outback. See a fiery sun sink into rugged ranges, mulga bush and desert plain as you arrive into Sydney this morning.
