Say no to FOMO with Journey Beyond’s exciting 2025 tour release news

Did you think the most exciting news this month would be Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales? Nope! Because we’ve got the skinny on Journey Beyond’s 2025 season, including the get-in-early deets on the Journey Beyond Rail, Outback Spirit, and Sal Salis ‘25 season!

Did you think the most exciting news this month would be Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales? Nope! Because we’ve got the skinny on Journey Beyond’s 2025 season, including the get-in-early deets on the Journey Beyond Rail, Outback Spirit, and Sal Salis ‘25 season!

Sure, we love a good bargain; who doesn’t? But what we love more is No FOMO. Especially No Travel FOMO (it’s a thing). Getting the inside scoop on travel for 2025 is better than any discount. You’ll get in first to snag the perfect dates, cabin, or tour seat of your desires ahead of the pack. 

Not that you can’t get a discount, too. When you book with Journey Beyond Rail for 2025 travel, you’ll save 10% with their Advance Purchase discount

Travel longer on the Indian Pacific  

The Indian Pacific is extending its eastbound itinerary to a five-day, four-night journey from January 2025

The biggest news for Journey Beyond Rail in 2025 is the Indian Pacific’s eastbound itinerary extension. What do travellers love better than savings? Reason to travel longer!  

When you journey aboard the Indian Pacific from Perth to Sydney in 2025, you’ll gain a whole extra day to see Australia in a new and unexplored light. You’ll want to get in quick though, this now 5-day, 4-night journey has new Off Train Experiences and trip enhancements that’ll make it even more popular!

We had a sneak peek at the 2025 upgraded itinerary and saw a new signature dining experience at the legendary Seppeltsfield Barossa vineyard! Chef Owen Andrews has curated a special menu for Journey Beyond, paired with local Barossa Valley wines, of course. This is alongside stops at Kalgoorlie, Cook, Broken Hill, and the Blue Mountains, too. 

The Indian Pacific’s other hot news is the launch of Gold Premium. This is the ‘more’ you deserve, with more courses at dinner, more amenities in the cabin, more premium wines, and more special touches that reveal how much more worth every guest should be demanding when they depart the Indian Pacific!

Oh, and there are newly designed cabins, to boot. 

Perfect pairings with Journey Beyond Rail & Outback Spirit

Uluru The Ghan Red Centre Spectacular Journey Beyond
Immerse yourself in the Northern Territory’s natural wonders on the Red Centre Spectacular journey

While not every Journey Beyond Rail departure is available in this soft launch, the most iconic trips are. This includes time aboard the iconic Ghan on the Red Centre Spectacular and Ultimate Territory Tour, touring with Outback Spirit on their all-inclusive 4WD small group Outback adventures.

Sometimes you don’t know how well things pair until you’re presented with it. Like the first time you tasted your mate’s peanut butter and banana sanger on the playground. Or baked a surprisingly delicious cake with avocado and beets.

Journey Beyond’s new pairing is like that because you can seamlessly travel on The Ghan and Outback Spirit’s Arnhem Land Wilderness Adventure in 2025. In one trip – wow. And word is, there are even more tour pairings to come like this.

BTW, did you know if you book at least six months in advance with Journey Beyond Rail, you’ll receive their Advance Purchase fare? Getting a bonus 10% savings for booking early because you don’t like FOMO? That’s winning. 

All-inclusive in 2025

Helicopters are now included with Outback Spirit. Like this one on their Cape York Wilderness Adventure

While you’ll need to wait until early 2024 for Outback Spirit’s full season launch (you’ll hear it here first), some of their most popular tours are out ready for booking for the 2025 season.  

This includes: 

Seems like plenty to be swotting up on and travel prepping for, yeah?  

Let’s not forget that all Outback Spirit tours are all-inclusive. This means their fabulous accommodation (like Ngauwadu Safari Lodge), all meals, all beverages, all attractions, permits and fees, and even helicopter flights are included. Basically, the only time you’ll need your wallet with Outback Spirit is for souvenirs.

Could we leave you hanging about Sal Salis’s fabulous Ningaloo Reef luxury safari tents? Absolutely not. That’s like offering a Black Friday sale with only 1% off – and we’re not stingy at Karryon. 

Sal Salis Wilderness Tent
Plan your 2025 self-care now

Given how popular Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is, the surprising number of ways to relax there, and how away-from-it-all it is (i.e. removing you from the chaos of woeful news, price hikes, look-at-me-socials, and bad bosses), popping a stay on your 2025 travel calendar seems as much like self-care as a brilliant adventure to WA’s Ningaloo Reef.
