The vast desert between Adelaide and Perth is as close to ‘magnificent desolation’ as you can get on this planet. Parched red earth stretches from horizon to horizon, dotted with gnarly gum trees, the odd flock of sheep, and kangaroos and emus aplenty. Haunting, yes; boring, no - especially on board the Indian Pacific train from Perth to Sydney.
With food and wine sourced from Australia’s finest food and wine regions (eg Hunter Valley, Barossa, Margaret River), the trip is frequently lauded as one of Australia’s greatest culinary experiences. Stay in a Gold Service sleeper cabin and you can stretch out in comfort as you travel through the night-time desert wilderness. The journey includes a stop at Rawlinson for dinner under the stars - an unforgettable experience.
