Enjoy the best of both worlds - bring your car along for the ride!

On our great Australian rail journeys, you can take the time to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Australian countryside without the hassle of driving. Just sit back, relax and gaze into the distance as your chosen train weaves effortlessly toward its destination.

With our Motorail Service, you can avoid the traffic and the long drive and enjoy the convenience of having your own car at the end of the line ready for the next stage of your journey.

All you have to do is pack the car with all of your holiday gear and check the vehicle into the rail terminal on your departure day. Then, relax and enjoy the comfort of the train while your car travels safely onboard one of our purpose-built vehicle transporters.

Size restrictions do apply for large vehicles and trailers, so it is important to be aware of these limitations before booking. For Motorail fares, rates for each train and vehicle check in times, please visit the links below.

Motorail services are available to be booked between Adelaide and Perth (and v.v.) on the Indian Pacific and Adelaide and Darwin (and v.v.) on The Ghan. 

Before booking Motorail please ensure you read the Motorail Conditions of Carriage.

Bookings for Motorail can only be made by calling 13 21 47. Please ensure you have your car measurements prior to calling to make your booking.
