Come with me on a train ride. We’ll travel 4,352 kilometres across Australia from east to west, spending four days and three nights on a train 731 metres long. We’ll start in Sydney and stay in Perth at the end and along the way we’ll traverse deserts, stop in a ghost town and cross the mighty Nullarbor Plain. Come with me on a transcontinental journey aboard the iconic Indian Pacific!
Indian Pacific Adventure #1 Sydney Harbour
You know you’re in Sydney when you see a ferry going past the Harbour Bridge,
and another sailing around the Opera House.
The best way to see all three is on a ferry ride on Sydney Harbour.
Vivid Sydney is a glorious festival of light, music and ideas held every winter in the harbour district of the city. Amazing digital lighting creates a world of colour and movement using famous buildings and the city skyline as the backdrop. In Darling Harbour the light walk includes a display of dancing waterfalls, fireworks and lasers set to music, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge glows with colour. These spectacular illuminations may be fleeting but the memories will last a very long time.
Sydney Opera House was inscribed in the World Heritage List in June 2007: “Sydney Opera House is a great architectural work of the 20th century. It represents multiple strands of creativity, both in architectural form and structural design, a great urban sculpture carefully set in a remarkable waterscape and a world famous iconic building.” UNESCO
