Food & Wine
Culinary touring is booming in popularity and it’s no surprise that Australia is leading the way.
This is a land of sublime food and wine: dazzling seafood, glorious cheeses and tropical fruit, succulent beef and lamb… Our expert chefs source the best local and seasonal ingredients, matching dishes with fine regional wines – brilliant bottles from iconic wine regions like the Barossa Valley, Margaret River, Yarra Valley and Hunter Valley.
The Australian craft beer, gin and whisky scenes are growing in notoriety too. Under the southern sun, there’s little chance of your glass running dry.
MARGARET RIVER INDULGENCE
A short journey south of Perth, the beautiful Margaret River region offers an irresistible combination of premium wines, regional food specialties and artisan providores. Combined with stunning natural attractions – caves, forests and spectacular surf beaches – Margaret River makes an indulgent start to your Indian Pacific crossing to Sydney. On your journey, remote gold-mining towns, the mesmerising Nullarbor Plain and magnificent Blue Mountains await.
TASTE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Take a seat at the table: South Australia’s warm climate and mineral-rich soils deliver outstanding food and wine. Adelaide is SA’s flavour-packed epicentre, with top-flight restaurants and markets. This epicurean adventure includes a sumptuous lunch at Penfolds Magill Estate and a day touring the famous Barossa Valley. The Ghan then conveys you to tropical Darwin via Alice Springs and Katherine, with fine dining and glorious outback scenery en route.
