The 6 benefits of escorted rail travel

  • 1. Well-crafted itineraries

Our intriguing and memorable itineraries balance train travel with other interesting modes of transport. Walking tours with museum and gallery visits, city locations with the bush, local cuisine with western menus and busy days with leisure time for activities of your choice. Our partnerships with other speciality operators offer new destinations, with many of our tours featuring VIP access to places and events not available to other operators.

  • 2. Like-minded travellers

Over the years we’ve developed a loyal band of Railway Adventurers, some of whom have travelled with us more than five times. They say the small groups, our supportive and experienced tour leaders, the distinct blend of nature, history and culture themes of our tours, and of course our sometimes-quirky modes of transport attract like-minded travellers and create a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. Solo travellers feel included, nurtured, and most of all safe in our company.

  • 3. Hand-picked hotels

We choose our hotels based on location, customer feedback, value, comfort, and atmosphere. Wherever possible they are 5-star, or at the very least, the best on offer in a central location. Feedback from our clients consistently tells us that staying in the heart of a city or town is ideal – it makes exploring on your own in your time off so much easier!

  • 4. Unique modes of travel

A Railway Adventure isn’t limited to regular trains – you’ll enjoy private charters of vintage steam trains and trams, luxury rail-cruising, quirky rail cars, private boats, and luxury coaches where we aim to give every traveller two seats to themselves. VIP access behind the scenes or a ride up in the locomotive makes for the most memorable travel experience.

  • 5. The ‘inside’ story

We’ve got strong relationships with the locals, heritage rail volunteers, suppliers coach captains, and local guides in every destination who don’t just ‘rattle off facts’ – they help us plan our itineraries and, on tour, freely share their deep knowledge and genuine passion for what they do. Additionally, we always do a detailed inspection trip prior to launching a tour. So, you’ll have lots of info about local restaurants, shopping, festivals and experiences.

  • 6. Feeling secure

Our tour leaders are some of the most experienced, knowledgeable, well-resourced, and highly regarded in the industry. Their job is to help make your holiday the best you’ve had – from sharing travel tips before you leave home to giving you options for your free time on tour and being the social lubricator and ‘go-to’ person along the way.



Variety is the spice of life on the rails and that is what you’ll get in spades with Railway Adventures. Character-filled, zig-zagging railways of the mountains, privately chartered heritage steam trains, dinner in the diner on a slow moving express, dinky little carriages in Outback Queensland, Tasmania, and the West — if it travels on a rail track, we’re there!


We can’t travel everywhere by train so sometimes we need to move by road, boat and plane. Whichever way we travel your comfort and enjoyment is paramount. It’s the warm comfortable beds at night, the culinary delights, the history of a place, the immersion in a new culture and the people we meet that makes travelling so enjoyable.
