WE CAN’T ALWAYS BE THE ONES TRAVELLING! HERE’S A HIGHLIGHT FROM ONE OF OUR AMAZING CLIENTS

STAY TUNED TO SEE WHERE WE GO NEXT !

Ruth – avid traveller and dedicated Travel Masters client – has recently returned from the ‘Heritage Highlights’ journey aboard The Great Southern, travelling from Adelaide to Brisbane by rail. Ruth spent 3 days and 3 nights visiting Adelaide, The Grampians, Parkes, Orange and Gulgong before finishing off her journey in Brisbane. She originally heard about this incredible rail voyage on the radio – and contacted Kerry at Travel Masters who helped her book her trip! We asked what she thought – and here’s what she had to say:

Adelaide to Brisbane on
The Great Southern

What was your favourite experience?

The Train & The Staff

The train and the staff onboard were the highlight.  At over 700 meters it stretches around bends in the track that often you were unable to see the front and back of the train!

What was your favourite destination?

Rowlee Wines & Vineyards

The old stable block at Rowlee has been converted into a lush dining room for a farm-to-table lunch with generous tastings of Rowlee’s top single vineyard drops, including Cuvee, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Arneis, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet, and Nebbiolo..8 tastings in all!

What was your favourite dining experience?

Rowlee Wines & Vineyards

Seared Venison with Roasted Beetroot on Rocket with Cherry Sauce and Roasted Hazelnuts served with Artisan Sourdough Bread and Olive Oil.  Served to me at the Rowlee Wines & Vineyards – absolutely delicious!

Ruth’s Top Tips for travelling on The Great Southern train

1 – Settle In – Just relax and enjoy the journey, the historical destinations and the endless food and wine experience!

2 – See More – The Great Southern operates between Brisbane and Adelaide, but the journey is different in each direction, so why not do a back to back and make it a round trip?

3 – Access for Everyone – Mobility is not an issue on this experience. All aspects of the journey is available for all mobility levels, and the staff are always happy to help.
