The landscape outside your cabin window undergoes a dramatic transformation from the barren remoteness of the outback to the golden fields of South Australia's food-bowl as you near beautiful Adelaide where you have the option to spend time in the city itself enjoying its many attractions, or alternatively you can choose to visit the picturesque Barossa Valley and its fabulous boutique wineries, your day finishes back on board the Indian Pacific with a welcoming nightcap awaiting you on your bedside table.

Day 3

 Indian Pacific (Cook and The Nullarbor)

You’ll spot the vast horizon beyond the window this morning as you arrive on the edges of the sweeping Nullarbor Plain. The ancient stillness of the desert landscape is broken only by a mob of friendly kangaroos or the occasional circling bird of prey. Enjoy an off-train excursion in Cook. Once a bustling railway community, and now effectively a ghost town, Cook gives new meaning to the expression “middle of nowhere”.

Get a sense of the Nullarbor’s intense remoteness as you wander through Cook’s abandoned buildings and learn more about the town’s intriguing history. Back on board, the beverages are cold and the welcoming atmosphere of the Outback Explorer Lounge inspires conversation and laughter. Sit back and relax as the train continues its trek across the longest single stretch of railway in the world.
