OVERNIGHT: 3 nights Indian Pacific (D)

DAY THREE – INDIAN PACIFIC, NULLARBOR PLAIN 

Today, wake up and marvel at the raw beauty of the Nullarbor. Taking its name from the Latin meaning ‘no trees’, the ancient Nullarbor conjures the sense of limitless space and time, making this journey all about those amazing outback views as you cross this famous stretch of the Australian interior. Dinner this evening is under an outback sky on the edge of the country’s largest sheep station at Rawlinna (seasonal). (B,L,D)

DAY FOUR – INDIAN PACIFIC, PERTH 

Your breakfast treat this morning is watching the delightful Avon Valley pass by as the final stage of your transcontinental crossing unfolds, heading into Perth where your connection with the Indian Ocean begins. Check in to your accommodation and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.
