The journey is as much in the moment and experience as in the destination. That’s why so many trips in the Constellation Journeys collection offer special modes of transport. And with four days aboard the iconic Indian Pacific, ‘Go West’ is no exception.
Join us on this indulgent sojourn to Western Australia before travelling back east aboard the fabulous Indian Pacific train.
Together we shall sample the epicurean delights of the Margaret River region before reacquainting ourselves
with Perth and nearby Fremantle, as well as the unique Rottnest Island.
Stepping aboard the legendary Indian Pacific we evoke the romanticism of yesteryear with an epic journey across Australia. Whether you choose Gold Class or Platinum Class you will be well accommodated in beautifully appointed cabins. Enjoy the splendour of regionally inspired meals in the dining car, accompanied by excellent wine and beverages.
We pass through fascinating places along the way, including the gold mining tour of Kalgoorlie – home to one of the world’s largest open cut gold mines. A detour in the arid Nullabor shows us the edge of a 2.5 million acre sheep farm
