As the views transform before your eyes, get ready for your first off train excursion in the wild west town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. It’s long and fascinating history means there's plenty to see, learn and do.

Day 2
Indian Pacific

As you wake, you’ll find yourself on the edges of the sweeping Nullarbor Plain. Vast horizons and big blue skies await and the ancient stillness of the desert landscape is only broken by a mob of friendly kangaroos or the occasional circling bird of prey. After a leisurely breakfast, you'll step off the train for a short stop in Cook. Once a bustling railway community, now effectively a ghost town, Cook gives new meaning to the expression "middle of nowhere".

Day 3
Indian Pacific

By morning, desert views give way to the rolling South Australian countryside. You’ll enjoy an entertaining stop in the beautifully-designed Adelaide, renowned for arts festivals, pop-up bars, and laneway restaurants. Over lunch, watch as pastures dissolve into tough mallee scrub on approach to Broken Hill, one of Australia’s legendary outback bases. Here, you can visit the The Main Drag, The Regional Art Gallery or The Big Picture.
