The Indian Pacific

Travelling between Sydney, Adelaide, and Perth, the Indian Pacific traverses mountain ranges, passes through arid deserts and goldfields, through rocky valleys and desert savannahs on its transcontinental crossings. Whether you’re journeying from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific or the other way round, you’ll be making your way across the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world.
