Brisbane to Adelaide

Day 1 – New South Wales Day 2 – Hunter Valley Day 3 – Victoria Day 4 – Adelaide
The New South Wales Coast is the perfect place to enjoy sandy beaches, sparkling sunsets, surfing, and of course a fine dinner on board. A day of vineyards! We’ll travel past the Shiraz and Semillion wineries before taking a trip through Hunter Valley vineyards where you can have either a curated cellar door tour, a trip through the sand dunes, a dolphin cruise on Nelson Bay or a day trip to explore Newcastle. Enjoy the fine dining experience of Victoria, a land closely in tune with the farm to fork ethos. You’ll have the chance to see the Great Ocean Road as the train passes through the Twelve Apostles in the Southern Ocean. You’ll have a day to spend in Melbourne (complete with lunch atop the Eureka Tower). If you’d prefer, there is the chance to take a coach tour to the Twelve Apostles to take in the stunning views over Loch Ard Gorge and the Southern Ocean. Today we’ll be in Adelaide. Enjoy breakfast on board as we glide through the green fields of South Australia before arriving. If you’re not quite ready for your adventure to end, there is the opportunity to take a trip to the Barossa Valley or Kangaroo Island.
