|Cabin||Fare Type||31 Dec 2021|
Step aboard the Great Southern and settle into your cabin as we make our way out of Adelaide and start our end-of-year journey. You’ll have time to settle into the rhythm of the train on this special New Year’s Eve departure before sitting down to a lavish long lunch – your first meal on board. The afternoon gives you the chance to explore the spectacular Grampians with a choice of three included Off Train Experiences. Back on board, you’ll enjoy a delicious supper, while chatting with fellow guests or relaxing into the romance of train travel. Onboard entertainment will help you usher in the New Year, glass of bubbly or drink of your choice in hand. (B,L,D)
OVERNIGHT: Great Southern
This is a unique way to start the year. Not many people can say their year kicked off with a tour of some of the cultural icons of Canberra, including lunch at Parliament House. Choose to place a poppy at the Australian War Memorial, explore behind the scenes at Parliament House or discover some of the most iconic portraits in Australia at the National Portrait Gallery and visit Old Parliament House. Later in the evening, an onboard dinner will round out the first day of the year as we glide into the night. (B,L,D)
OVERNIGHT: Great Southern
By this morning, we’ll have crossed into New South Wales. Coffs Harbour plays host to a range of Off Train Experiences today, allowing for exploration beyond the tracks. From an Indigenous guided boardwalk and bush tucker experience to a gentle bike ride along the river to the ocean or drinking in the magnificent views from Sealy Lookout, this coastal city is simply waiting to be discovered. Alternatively, upgrade to a 20-minute helicopter ride. Back on the Great Southern, enjoy the last few hours of your journey as we roll towards our final destination: Brisbane. (B,L)
