Holiday Overview

Southern Australia By Rail – A Multi Centre Australia Rail Holiday 

 

Join the very different cities of Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney on this multi-centre rail holiday. Enjoy “foodie” Adelaide, with its fine local produce and arts scene. Melbourne is a cosmopolitan metropolis with a decidedly European feel whilst the sights of Sydney need little introduction. Against the urban back drop, there are plenty of opportunities to witness the wildlife and natural beauty of Australia, both from the comfort of your train journeys and with carefully chosen day tours in Adelaide and Melbourne.

Start Adelaide Finish Sydney (can be done in reverse).
