Wake to a spectacular Nullarbor sunrise. Spend a leisurely morning taking in outback vistas, before a regionally-inspired menu of modern Australian cuisine and fine wines awaits you for lunch.

DAY THREE – INDIAN PACIFIC, ADELAIDE AND BROKEN HILL

As the landscape changes again and rich ochre sands make way for forests and farmlands, you will arrive into Adelaide. After a rewarding Off Train Excursion in the South Australian capital, return to the Indian Pacific to continue your journey toward Sydney.
