A  journey by rails is no everyday journey.

From the moment you step aboard, the frantic pace of day-to-day life fades away and a new kind of world opens. A world that allows you to escape quickly, and as you gently roll through ancient landscapes, reawakening your senses, you will uncover flavours, colours and details that far exceed your expectations.

For 90 years, guests from around the world have had the privilege of taking their time and embracing the wonders of these incredible rail expeditions. By stepping aboard The Ghan, Indian Pacific or Great Southern you become a part of this truly unique Australian legacy. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, the owners have operated The Ghan (Adelaide-Alice Springs-Darwin), the Indian Pacific (Sydney-Adelaide-Perth) and The Overland (Melbourne-Adelaide) rail journeys since 1997 when they became the first transcontinental passenger rail business to be privatized in Australia.

A legendary past. A new era of experience. Taking you to Australia’s most extraordinary destinations in unparalleled style, travelling on our iconic trains is a moving and unforgettable life experience.

Today, they are passionate and always evolving, building on their trains’ remarkable heritage, and inspired by the wonder of Australia, connecting travelers to enriching, powerful experiences both on and off our iconic trains.

So, do not just embark on a journey, allow Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions to take you further.
