Join The Senior and Travelrite International for a Rail and Coach Exploration of NSW from October 17-29.
You can simply sit back and relax on this fully escorted tour from Sydney to Coffs Harbour and everywhere in between, with travel on the North Western Explorer, North Coast XPT and Western XPT combined with coach travel.
The journey starts from Sydney's Central Station with a picturesque train journey to Bathurst through the spectacular Blue Mountains via Katoomba and Lithgow.
We'll take a look through the Railway Museum in Bathurst, drop in at former prime minister Ben Chifley's house, Chifley Home, and visit Abercrombie House and Mount Panorama, home of the Bathurst 1000 is staged.
Then it's on to our coach bound for the beautiful Mayfield Garden at Mount Oberon before setting our sights on Cowra, where we visit the Japanese War Cemetery Cowra POW Camp as well as the Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre, a monument to peace and reconciliation between Japan and Australia.
Make to pack your blue suede shoes for our visit to Parkes where we'll see the King's Castle Elvis Exhibit, a collection of genuine Elvis artefacts.
Of course, no trip to Parkes would be complete without a look at the Parkes Radio Telescope, star of the 2000 movie The Dish and one of Australia's most famous landmarks.
Moving on to Orange and its smorgasbord of fine food and wine, the tour takes in a boutique winery, Mount Canobolas and the Botanic Gardens.
From Orange we board the Western XPT for a noon train to Dubbo on the banks of the Macquarie River.
While in town we'll enjoy time at the Royal Flying Doctor Experience as well as at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, home to hundreds of rare and endangered animals.
