Journey Beyond shakes up Indian Pacific itinerary in 2025 launch

The famous cross-country journey from Perth to Sydney will look a little different to travellers from the beginning of 2025.

The Indian Pacific's east-bound journey will expand to four nights from 2025.

Journey Beyond will introduce some significant changes to its famous cross-country Indian Pacific rail itinerary from 2025, helmed by the addition of a fourth night onboard to passengers embarking on the east-bound crossing.

In launching and opening its 2025 calendar for bookings on the Indian Pacific and the recently upgraded The Ghan and Great Southern, Journey Beyond has added a range of new small group off-train experiences for travellers on the Perth to Sydney route operated by its sister brand Outback Spirit.

These experiences will include a signature dining experience at Seppeltsfield Barossa Valley in South Australia, where guests will enjoy a special menu curated by Executive Chef Owen Andrews which will be coupled with a range of exclusive Journey Beyond touches.

The immersive dining experience will take place in addition to a number of new adventures offered to guests during scheduled stops in Kalgoorlie, Cook, Broken Hill and the Blue Mountains enroute to Sydney.

Journey Beyond's new Gold Premium category will appear on the Indian Pacific from 2025.

The train will also introduce Journey Beyond’s new Gold Premium travel category and redecorated cabin and lounge interiors which were introduced this year to The Ghan and Great Southern.

Journey Beyond General Manager of Rail, David Donald, said he was delighted to launch the 2025 season for Indian Pacific, The Ghan and Great Southern.

“Each year, our train and holiday packages get bigger and better, and we’re thrilled to extend the Indian Pacific journey and reimagine crossing the Nullarbor by train,” Donald said.

“The extended 2025 journey includes new experiences and enhancements that will deliver an incredible opportunity to explore Australia in a different way.”

The new Indian Pacific itinerary is now open to book for departures from January 2025 and beyond.
