    Upon arrival in Perth, you’ll be met at the airport and shown to your hotel in the world’s most remote capital city. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy however you like. Go for a walk along the sandy beaches or take a stroll through Kings Park and Botanical Garden. Explore the local streets, enjoy a drink at a lively watering hole, pop into a few charming shops—it’s entirely up to you. Return to the hotel for some time to unwind before sitting down to dinner.

  • Day 2

    Set out from Perth toward the Margaret River. Along the way, you’ll pass through Rockingham, one of the earliest settlements in Western Australia. Hear stories of Captain Stirling’s first landing on Garden Island from your local guide as your journey continues south to Ngilgi Cave. Discovered in 1899, this subterranean realm of stalactites, stalagmites, and shawl formations is yours to explore on a self-guided tour. Back on the surface, make a stop at the historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, perched where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet, before checking into the Cape Lodge and savoring a delicious four-course dinner.

  • Day 3
    Read More +

    Enjoy a light breakfast before heading out to discover the wines of Margaret River. This revered region is responsible for only one percent of all Australian wines, yet they’re considered among the absolute best. You’ll visit notable vineyards, including the Voyager Estate, Xanadu Winery, and Leeuwin Estate on an unforgettable day of food and wine indulgence. Heading back to Perth takes you on a panoramic drive along the coast with a stop for lunch in Busselton, a quaint village that’s famed for being home to Australia’s longest jetty, a wooden pier stretching 1.25 miles out to sea. Return to Perth where dinner is at your leisure.

  • Day 4
    Read More +

    Begin your journey aboard the Indian Pacific Railway, following in the wake of adventurers, gold prospectors and bush pioneers who dared to venture into Australia’s unforgiving interior. You, however, will do so in Platinum Class comfort, highlighted by a private cabin with the finest amenities found on the rails. Relax, get to know your fellow travelers, and embrace this timeless mode of travel as the city transforms into the greens of the Avon Valley. Enjoy a gourmet lunch at the train’s Queen Adelaide Restaurant before making your first stop – the wild-west town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, home to an active “Super Pit” gold mine that still yields riches around the clock.

  • Day 5
    Read More +

    After night one in your cozy cabin, awaken to find the train entering the Nullarbor Plain. The starkness of this landscape boasts its own beauty with sweeping blue skies and desert in every direction. Keep watch as you might spot a mob of kangaroos going about their business. Settle into a delicious breakfast and, by the time you’ve finished, you’ll be in Cook. One step off the train and it will quickly become evident that this once-thriving community is now effectively a ghost town—there are a whopping four residents. Explore the eerie buildings and learn about the town’s history – including why it was forever abandoned.

  • Day 6
    Read More +

    By morning light, you’ll find the Nullarbor has given way to the rolling South Australian countryside. Today’s stop is Adelaide, a city known for its vibrant arts culture and pop-up bars. Join the shoppers at the Adelaide Central Market for an authentic taste of local life. Cured meats to sweet pastries, fresh fruit to confections, this hodgepodge of market stalls is a must-do experience and your chance to sample local delicacies. Your day continues with a sightseeing drive, a visit to a chocolate factory, and a stop at the Mount Lofty Lookout for the best views of the city. Afterwards, it’s all aboard to resume your journey on the rails.

  • Day 7
    Read More +

    Begin a winding journey into the heart of Australia’s majestic Blue Mountains, a stretch of rail that offers up views you just can’t experience any other way.

Stop at Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair to take in sweeping views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Learn about the history of this stone bench before enjoying a leisurely walk along the waterfront. After some more sightseeing, savor a beachfront lunch at the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club before boarding the ship to begin your Azamara voyage.

    Upon arrival in Sydney, debark the ship and meet your guide to begin your cross-continental journey. Day one takes you deep into the Blue Mountains on a tour through this rugged landscape encompassing more than 2.5 million acres. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and find yourself captivated by panoramas overlooking the famed Seven Sister rocks, Jamison Valley, and imposing mountain peaks. Visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park for a close look at Australia’s unique animals, including kangaroos, koalas, and Tasmanian Devils before unwinding over lunch at the Mountain Heritage Hotel.

Venture into the historic Rocks precinct; explore the Botanical Gardens; stroll along the waterfront; and savor lunch at the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club. Next, board the Indian Pacific Railway to begin your bucket-list journey across the continent. Follow the path of gold prospectors and bush pioneers deep into Australia’s unforgiving interior.

    Pull into the old mining town of Broken Hill bright and early. Hop off to find wide streets brimming with mining history and artful pursuits. Visit the Pro Hart Gallery to learn about one revered artist (Ken Charles “Pro” Hart) devoted to capturing the spirit of the outback. Back on board the train, enjoy breakfast and spend the rest of the day watching the natural beauty pass by outside the windows. Rumble your way into the green fields of South Australia for a stop in Adelaide. Here, you’ll have a few options. One, explore the wineries of Barossa Valley; two, visit Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement; or three, discover Adelaide’s Aboriginal roots.

  • Day 4
    Read More +

    Wake up to find yourself staring at the stark beauty of the Nullarbor Plain. This landscape boasts its own kind of majesty with sweeping blue skies and barren desert in every direction. In fact, the name Nullarbor is derived from the Latin phrase meaning ‘no trees,’ and you’ll soon understand why. Settle into the Explorer Lounge as you venture across Australia’s longest stretch of single railway, and be sure to keep watch as you might spot a mob of kangaroos going about their business. Come nightfall, enjoy a special treat – an evening stop amid these desolate lands to enjoy canapés and cocktails under the brilliant desert stars.

  • Day 5
