Experience Victoria by Private Train. Slow Rail Journeys allows guests to experience the romance of rail travel reliving the elegance of a bygone era on upscale weekend tours by train from Melbourne to some of the most spectacular destinations in regional Victoria.
Guests are accommodated in their fleet of ex-Overland and Southern Aurora sleeping carriages, hauled when possible by steam locomotive R707.
Every Slow Rail Journey includes overnight travel from Melbourne, a bespoke program of off-train experiences, six meals and daylight travel back to Melbourne.
Monthly departures focus on visiting the Mallee Silo Art Trail, Outback Victoria and the Murray region.
Their itineraries showcase the best of three fascinating corners of Victoria from world-class attractions to stunning artworks and gourmet cuisine. Tailored to complement the train’s itinerary are several Off-Train Experiences that showcase regional Victoria.
Slow Rail Journeys has a strong commitment to re-investing in the regions visited.
They work closely with local businesses to provide catering, tours, and other supplies choosing to source locally to benefit the communities they visit.
Local venues are used to source catering to ensure guests experience the finest of country dining and hospitality - iconic venues such as the Woomelang Hotel, the Kangaroo Hotel in Maldon and Wycheproof’s Terminus Hotel feature on the itinerary. They travel with local coach operators and more supporting the communities they visit.
