The Overland Premium

Project Overview

The owner of Australia’s two iconic Great Train Journeys; The Ghan and The Indian Pacific, asked us to help them develop a new Platinum Class “luxury hotel on wheels”, to complement their rail cruising fleet.

Atomiq provided interior design and service design for new luxury accommodation carriages on the Southern Spirit Train for Great Southern Rail. 

The cabins feature a full size double bed, which retracts during the day to provide a lounge type cabin complete with coffee table and ottomans. The design provides each cabin with unprecedented rail luxury in a full ensuite bathroom with glass fronted shower cubicle, vanity area and WC.

We designed cabin finishes and features including custom furniture, fixtures, and a special splash minimising vanity sink.

We also developed a service level package including leather passenger trip journal, signature towels and linen, custom bedding, monogrammed cushions, selection of all food service utensils, flatware and tableware, selection of ensuite consumables and toiletries, guest amenity items and the development of branded guest comfort items.
