Journey Beyond and Silversea Cruises combine
Journey Beyond has partnered with Silversea Cruises to Launch Exclusive ‘Australia by Land and Sea’ Holiday Package
It is one of Journey Beyond's most extensive packages yet, combining not one, but two iconic rail journeys – The Ghan and the Indian Pacific – with a cruise provided by ultra-luxury cruise operator Silversea Cruises.
The Ultimate West by Land and Sea package is an extraordinary 28-day journey that laps half of Australia. This exclusive offering is a unique opportunity, with only one departure for 2024. It combines the best of both worlds, across the Nullarbor to Perth and along Western Australia’s coast on the Silversea Kimberley voyage from Perth to Darwin in search of the ultimate adventure, filled with stunning landscapes. Guests will visit a range of Australia's most iconic destinations, from the vibrant cityscapes of Sydney and Perth to the rugged landscape of the Kimberley and then through The Red Centre into the spiritual heart of Australia.
"This incredible experience explores the most remote reaches of Australia," says David Donald, Executive General Manager of Rail Expeditions at Journey Beyond. "The Ghan and Indian Pacific are two iconic journeys, and pairing these with Silversea's luxury cruising promises our guests an authentic Australian experience that will provide a whole new perspective on some of the most far-flung reaches of the country. It’s a rather exceptional odyssey."
Award-winning Silversea Cruises is the leading ultra-luxury expedition cruise line, acclaimed for its all-inclusive offering and unmatched portfolio. Silversea’s small ships are designed for those who delight in discovery and choose to indulge in luxury. All ships feature spacious ocean-view suites with butler service, and most include private verandas, meaning guests can sip champagne from the comfort of their deck with ocean views.
Silversea Cruises offers expeditions to the world’s extraordinary places, and the Kimberley is a hugely popular destination," says Adam Radwanski, Silversea Cruises Managing Director Asia-Pacific. "We are delighted to partner with Journey Beyond to offer this rare and one-off adventure for discerning travellers who seek an immersive and authentic experience of Australia."
The Ultimate West by Land and Sea experience highlights include:
The 28-day Ultimate West by Land and Sea departs 21 August 2024 and is priced from $35,295pp.
