Travel Alerts – Australian Bushfires

As has been widely publicised, some parts of Australia are tragically experiencing bushfires and we understand this may raise questions for guests of Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions.

The safety and welfare of our guests and crew is paramount and we are constantly monitoring the latest weather conditions and rail corridors.

At this time, all of our rail journeys continue to operate and there are no forecast cancellations.

For Indian Pacific guests travelling to Sydney, a portion of track has been closed and we are diverting south of the Blue Mountains. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to deliver the Blue Mountains Off Train Excursion and will instead proceed straight from Broken Hill through to Sydney.

Our thoughts are with the Australian community as we continue to navigate these difficult times. We have launched the Journey Beyond Bushfire Appeal whereby we will be matching all donations dollar for dollar and donating funds to four important organisations aiding bushfire recovery. For more information, or to donate, visit the Journey Beyond Bushfire Appeal.
