Over 100 years ago, The Overland pioneered inter-capital rail travel between two of Australia's most cosmopolitan cities, Melbourne and Adelaide. Today, the historic train continues to provide a convenient and comfortable way to travel between these two cities.

The Overland offers a daylight service between Adelaide, the gateway to many of Australia's best wine producing regions, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale, and Melbourne, home to many international sporting events, outstanding shopping and entertainment.

The Overland travels three times a week in either direction: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Adelaide to Melbourne and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Melbourne to Adelaide.

The Overland provides connections in Adelaide with the Indian Pacific, allowing a trans-continental journey from Perth to Sydney and vice versa, and also with The Ghan to and from Alice Springs and Darwin.
