Your day on board the Queen Elizabeth can be active and lively, or as calming and chilled as you like; there’s something on board to suit your every mood from swimming in the pool to relaxing in The Royal Spa; joining in with Book Club to browsing the Royal Arcade.
Also known as the ‘Friendly City’, Port Elizabeth is a thriving city with fine, sandy beaches and excellent museums including the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum. Head to the Donkin Reserve and climb to the top of the lighthouse to get great views across the city – perfect for getting your bearings.
Queen Elizabeth offers an array of elegant bars and lounges to suit every mood – during the day, sip coffee and nibble on croissants in Café Carinthia; enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the Midships Bar; toast friends in the Champagne Bar; and dance the night away in the Yacht Club.
Remote Réunion Island is located in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and Mauritius. Known for its incredible landscapes, from the rain forested interior with its tumbling waterfalls, to the white-sand beaches and colourful coral reefs, it’s a beautiful island to explore. Hike to the Piton des Neiges, dine on the fusion of Creole, Indian and Chinese cuisine, or swim in the turquoise lagoons.
Port Louis (Mauritius)
Sugar-white sand, enchanting lagoons and colourful reefs make every photograph taken in Mauritius look postcard-perfect. The island, ringed by coral and dotted with mountains, is brimming with things to see and do. Take a boat excursion to spot whales and dolphins, hike the Black River Gorges National Park or simply laze on the beach alongside the ocean.
A relaxing few days at sea gives you ample opportunity to experience all that your ship has to offer. There are so many activities to choose from; enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters, watch extravagant stage shows in opulent theatre surroundings and then dance the night away in the grand ballroom.
Fremantle (Perth) - Disembark Queen Elizabeth and Hotel Stay
Disembark in Fremantle and transfer to your hotel in Perth, a spirited city renowned for its eclectic mix of arty types and its streets buzzing with buskers, quirky boutiques and trendy cafes. Here you can sample a craft better from one of many microbreweries and find one-off shopping opportunities with original artworks and unique gifts.
Perth - Hotel stay
Perth combines sophisticated attractions and cultural events with beautiful beaches with an easy-going attitude to create one of Australia’s most liveable cities.

Take a whale watching tour, swim with wild dolphins or climb up to Reabold Hill Summit Boardwalk for stunning views.
Embark Indian Pacific - Perth to Kalgoorlie
Take your last breath of Indian Ocean air as you board the Indian Pacific. Your comfortable cabin awaits as does the elegantly-appointed restaurant car. All food is included, even the delicious rack of lamb and desert lime lamington, paired with a Margaret River sauvignon blanc. As the views transform before your eyes, get ready for your first off train excursion in the wild west town of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. It’s long and fascinating history means there's plenty to see, learn and do.
Indian Pacific - Cook and The Nullarbor
As you wake, you’ll find yourself on the edges of the sweeping Nullarbor Plain. Vast horizons and big blue skies await and the ancient stillness of the desert landscape is only broken by a mob of friendly kangaroos or the occasional circling bird of prey. After a leisurely breakfast, you'll step off the train for a short stop in Cook. Once a bustling railway community, now effectively a ghost town, Cook gives new meaning to the expression "middle of nowhere".
Indian Pacific - Adelaide and Broken Hill
By morning, desert views give way to the rolling South Australian countryside. You’ll enjoy an entertaining stop in the beautifully-designed Adelaide, renowned for arts festivals, pop-up bars, and laneway restaurants. Over lunch, watch as pastures dissolve into tough mallee scrub on approach to Broken Hill, one of Australia’s legendary outback bases. Here, you can visit the late Pro Hart's art studio or head for the Miners' Memorial where the stark reality of working in Broken Hill's mines is writ large.
Disembark Indian Pacific - Sydney Hotel stay
Winding your way through the magnificent Blue Mountains provides ample opportunity to kick back and reflect upon this unforgettable journey as you approach Sydney for your five night hotel stay. Sydney is far more than the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and inviting beaches. Embrace the city’s rich heritage and seek out the aboriginal rock carvings near Mackenzies Point or tour the Rocks and learn about Australia’s first European settlement.
Sydney - Hotel Stay
Enjoy two nights exploring this dynamic and exciting city. You could climb the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, walk from Bondi to Coogee Beach, take a guided walk around the city’s Royal Botanic Garden or enjoy some drinks in Darling Harbour.
