Journey Beyond’s Great Southern will return this summer, with the rail journey running for an extended 12-week season from 2 December 2022 to 23 February 2023, with a new offering – the Southern Wines & Wildlife package.
Travelling from Brisbane to Adelaide, guests on the Great Southern will travel down the coast, pausing for a beachside dinner in Coffs Harbour, exploration of the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens or Newcastle, and a choice of Melbourne city experiences or time in the Moorabool Valley. Once in Adelaide, guests depart on a journey through South Australia’s wine region. The package is rounded out with two nights on Kangaroo Island.
Australia’s Journey Beyond has opened its 2023 rail season for The Ghan, Great Southern and Indian Pacific earlier than ever before, giving guests greater choice and flexibility when planning a rail holiday.
Chief commercial officer for Journey Beyond, Peter Egglestone says guests are showing increased interest in planning and booking holidays for 2023.
New Zealanders are proving true to their reputation as travellers who look to get off the beaten track when it comes to rail travel, according to Richard Leonard, Rail Europe’s commercial director, Australasia.
