“We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us”.
Fun Over Fifty is proud to partner with Australia’s national rail carriers. Across the breadth and width of our country we travel on Great Southern Rail’s ‘The Ghan’ and ‘Indian Pacific’. In the Sunshine State we venture on Queensland Rail’s ‘Spirit of the Outback’, ‘Spirit of Queensland’, the Tilt Train as well as the unique outback rail experiences that are ‘The Gulflander’ and ‘The Savannahlander’. Our international programs also often feature highlight rail experiences that are quintessential to the regions we are visiting. We find that travelling by rail brings some nostalgia to your touring experience – there’s nothing quite like the old world glamour of train travel. Sit back, relax, enjoy first class service and watch the world go by to the sound of the clickity clack of the rails.
