Day 1

Adelaide and Broken Hill

TasteofSouthAustraliaDay2

Boarding The Indian Pacific in Adelaide, take in the striking, ever-changing landscape of South Australia heading East towards Sydney.

Over lunch, watch as pastures dissolve into tough mallee scrub on approach to Broken Hill. Known as the Silver City, Broken Hill is one of Australia's legendary Outback bases defined by its wide streets, country pubs and ties with the Royal Flying Doctors Service and School of the Air. Here, you can visit the late Pro Hart's art studio or head for the Miners' Memorial where the stark reality of working in Broken Hill's mines over the ages is writ large. The striking architectural edifice and spectacular view over the city add emotional weight to the list of more than 800 miners who lost their lives on the job.

Your first stop is Scenic World, offering a range of experiences for nature lovers, bushwalkers and thrill-seekers. Strap yourself in for an adrenalin-fuelling ride on the steepest-incline railway in the world before catching your breath and journeying back to the top of the mountain in a cable car. Take in the panoramic views of the Three Sisters from within the Skyway and further immerse yourself in the scenic Jamison Valley.
After all this excitement and mountain air, you’ll no doubt have worked up an appetite. Drive on to The Lookout Restaurant where you’ll enjoy lunch with award-winning beers and wines, not to mention more picturesque views.  From Katoomba, board a privately chartered train and be whisked away to Sydney Central Station where your journey comes to an end.
