Taste the adventure

Experience the best of both worlds with Journey Beyond's iconic rail journeys, where stunning landscapes meet unparalleled dining experiences, promising a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds.

Diverse and regionally inspired menus

The culinary experience aboard Journey Beyond trains, including the Indian Pacific, The Ghan, and the Great Southern, is nothing short of exceptional. Expertly curated by a team of culinary maestros, the menus draw inspiration from the diverse environments through which the trains travel.

Working closely with local suppliers, farmers, and providores, the culinary team sources the finest seasonal ingredients to craft innovative, regionally inspired dishes. From the saltbush of the Outback to the native lemon myrtle of coastal regions, every ingredient tells a story of its origin and adds a unique flavour to the menu.

Each menu boasts a unique illustration, highlighting one of the key ingredients featured in the dishes served during that sitting. Whether it’s Saltbush, used in a Roasted Cauliflower and Zucchini Salad with hummus, almonds, saltbush dukkah and toasted pita on The Ghan; Sweet Glazed Peking Duck Breast served with an Asian Savoy cabbage salad, sesame, oyster and desert lime dressing on the Indian Pacific; or caramelised pineapple in a native lemon myrtle syrup with Gelista lemon and yuzu sorbets on the Great Southern.

Whether enjoying a gourmet feast onboard the train, experiencing underground dining in Coober Pedy, or indulging in vineyard picnics in the Hunter Valley or Moorabool Valley, each meal is a celebration of Australia’s diverse culinary landscape.

Signature dinners in iconic locations

Each train journey features a Signature Dinner, offering guests an unforgettable dining experience in iconic locations along the route.

On The Ghan Expedition, travellers are treated to a spectacular dinner at the Telegraph Station in Alice Springs, where historic buildings frame the dining room, and a blanket of stars fills the night sky.

The Indian Pacific offers a (Seasonal) dinner at Rawlinna, set against the backdrop of Australia’s largest sheep station. Meanwhile, the eastbound itinerary introduces a Signature Dinner at the Vintage Cellars at Seppeltsfield Barossa Historic Winery Estate, curated by Executive Chef Andrew Owens.

For passengers aboard the Great Southern, a beachside seafood dinner awaits in Coffs Harbour, with string lights illuminating the night and a salty sea breeze adding to the ambiance.
