Get a taste of world-famous wine regions and award-winning restaurants right at your fingertips.

Day 2: Perth Free Day (B)
Today is free for you to soak up the amazing outdoors or enjoy a few cold drinks at the thriving metropolis of laneway bars. Perhaps wander the nearby city of Fremantle’s winding portside streets or even consider a day trip across to Rottnest Island.

Day 3: Margaret River Scenery & Wildlife Encounter (B, L)
Embark on a scenic drive down south to the charming seaside town of Mandurah before arriving at Bunbury for a quick stop at the Featured Wood Gallery & Museum. Lunch is at bustling Busselton where you’ll enjoy a leisurely walk along the famous Busselton Jetty. Stretch your legs at the marvellous Margaret River township with free time for a stroll along the main street. As the day winds down, spot Western Grey Kangaroos and friendly horses at the McLeod Family Farm. While heading back to your accommodation, catch views of surf breaks on along the coast. In spring during the wildflower season, you may even see a spectacular display of native wildflowers.

Day 4: Margaret River Food, Wine & Cultural Discovery (B, L)
Today is packed with food, wine and cultural highlights as we join the original Eat + Drink + Explore Tour. After breakfast at the immensely popular White Elephant beachside café, we set out on a day indulging in wine, beer, coffee, cheese, olive oil and chocolates at the region’s finest producers of coffee, wine, beer and gourmet food, including stops at the Margaret River Dairy Company and Margaret River Chocolate Company. Lunch is at a stunning local brewery where we’ll also enjoy a complimentary crafted brew or splendid local wine.

Day 5: Margaret River Forest, Cave & Lighthouse Exploration (B, L)
Discover tales of shipwrecks at Redgate Beach before heading underground at monumental Mammoth Cave, a labyrinth of intricate limestone formations. A scenic drive through the majestic Boranup Forest leads us to stunning Boranup Gallery, a showcase of quintessential Margaret River wood designs and furniture. Then, take in stunning views of the Blackwood River as we reach Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse for a tour of mainland Australia’s tallest lighthouse. Stop for lunch in Augusta before returning to Perth in the evening.

Day 6: Swan Valley Gourmet Wine River Cruise (B, L)
Make your own way to the Pier 3 Barrack St Jetty to board your cruise upstream the Swan River. Take in the stunning views as you enjoy morning tea with freshly brewed Yahava coffee and baked muffins. Experience your first taste of premium Western Australian wine and cheese onboard. Arrive at the prestigious Sandalford Estate for a special behind the scenes wine-making tour and walkthrough, followed by an indulgent two-course gourmet lunch and tasting of six premium wines – with a glass of your favourite for lunch. Enjoy fortified wine tasting at the cellar door before heading back onboard for dessert, all-inclusive wine and live entertainment on your return to Perth this evening.

Day 7: Board the Indian Pacific in Perth, Golden Outback (B, L, D)
Make your own way to East Perth Terminal for a mid-morning departure aboard the legendary Indian Pacific. Your fabled journey from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean begins as you settle into your comfortable cabin and get to know the creature comforts of life onboard. Enjoy a modern Australian lunch as you glide through the picturesque rolling hills of the Avon Valley. After a relaxing afternoon onboard, enjoy a three-course dinner prior to your late evening arrival in the wild west township of Kalgoorlie.

Day 8: Indian Pacific, Nullarbor Plain (B, L, D)
Awake to the spectacular expanse of the Nullarbor Plain to watch the sunrise. Be captivated by the big blue skies and ancient stillness of the desert landscape, broken only by a mob of friendly kangaroos. Waiting ahead is the charm of the once-thriving Nullarbor railway community – now ghost town – of Cook. Sit back and relax as the train continues its trek across the longest single stretch of railway in the world. Another mouth-watering dinner is followed by relaxed conversation in the lounge before a restful night’s sleep.

Day 9: Indian Pacific, Adelaide & Broken Hill (B, L, D)
As the landscape changes again and rich ochre sands make way for forests and farmlands, you will arrive into charming Adelaide. You have the choice of a walking tour (seasonal), a behind-the-scenes tour of the world famous Adelaide Oval, or a coach tour of the city sights. This evening you’ll enjoy a stop at Broken Hill, Australia’s silver capital and frontier outback town home to a unique artistic community.

Day 10: Indian Pacific, Blue Mountains & Sydney (B)
Take in the full spectacle of the Three Sisters and Jamison Valley with a morning excursion to the Blue Mountains before arriving on a chartered service to Sydney at approximately 3:15pm (time is subject to change). Alternatively, stay onboard the Indian Pacific arriving directly into Sydney at approximately 12:45pm (time is subject to change). Make your own way to the airport if you’re flying out this evening.
