There's no better way to enjoy the trip between Melbourne and Adelaide than on The Overland. Recently refurbished, The Overland provides a comfortable, relaxing journey between the cities and a great way to ease into a holiday in either Melbourne, Adelaide or surrounding regions.

With the reintroduction of Motorail Service onboard The Overland, Great Southern Rail now provides you with the opportunity to travel in comfort on all of our great trains, then enjoy the convenience of your own vehicle at the end of the line, ready to discover new and exciting places.

Throughout this interstate journey, guests can soak up a diverse range of landscapes from rugged mallee scrubland, to fields of golden crops, over vast open plains and through gently rolling hills.

The Overland passes through classic Australian country towns including Murray Bridge, Bordertown, Nhill, Dimboola, Horsham, Ararat and Geelong. Whichever direction you travel, the journey is a wonderful opportunity to relax in comfort, mingle with fellow travellers and delight in the ever-changing countryside along the way.

The Overland runs a daylight service between Adelaide and Melbourne in both directions, three times a week. Guests also have the opportunity to disembark from the train to explore the many regions and towns The Overland passes through along its route, then simply re-join the train on another scheduled service that suits their holiday timetable.

The Overland links Melbourne with two of Australia’s Great Train Journeys; the mighty Indian Pacific which traverses our huge continent between Sydney and Perth, via Adelaide, and The Legendary Ghan, travelling between Adelaide and Darwin. The Overland opens up exciting train travel all over Australia from either Adelaide or Melbourne.
