The Overland

There's no better way to enjoy the
trip between Melbourne and
Adelaide than on The Overland.
The Overland runs a daylight service
between Adelaide and Melbourne in
both directions, twice a week and
provides a comfortable, relaxing
journey between the cities and a
great way to ease into a holiday in
either Melbourne, Adelaide or
surrounding regions.

With Motorail Service onboard 
The Overland, Great Southern Rail

provides you with the opportunity to
travel in comfort on all of our great
trains, then enjoy the convenience of 
your own vehicle at the end of the 
line, ready to discover new and 
exciting places.

Throughout this interstate journey, guests can soak up a diverse range of landscapes from rugged mallee scrubland, to fields of golden crops, over vast open plains and through gently rolling hills.
