2017 Availabilities

The Savannahlander is an rail experience that takes in many parts of the Australian outback and takes in many of the towns, people and businesses along the way.  Due to this nature there are some occasions where the train may be running but there is no accommodation left in these towns – which means that you may not be able to travel some dates despite the train running weekly.

The Savannahlander will run weekly for 42 weeks of the year, starting on the 1st March 2017. The tables below show current availability for the tours:

Below is a list of available dates that will be updated as the year progresses – PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TABLE DOES NOTE GUARANTEE THIS TOUR IS AVAILABLE.  We can only email you a confirmation on a tour after a completed booking has been made.
