Home - Adelaide
After flying into Adelaide, enjoy a city tour before checking into our accommodation as we prepare for one of Australia's great train journeys.
The Ghan Train - Departing Adelaide
Step aboard the legendary Ghan, taking time to acquaint yourself with the friendly staff and your cabin. Departing Adelaide, what lies ahead is rugged, beautiful and spectacular - through the Red Centre to the tropical north of Australia. Relax in the lounge car with your fellow travellers and before long, some of the oldest rock formations in the world, the Flinders Ranges, will come into view. As darkness envelops the rugged outback, it's time to indulge in a regionally-inspired dinner and all inclusive fine wines and beverages.
The Ghan - Alice Springs
Begin with a freshly brewed coffee or juice as the day dawns at Marla, an outback outpost in the remote reaches of South Australia. It is here, deep inland, that you will enjoy a one of a kind experience, as you watch the desert come to life at sunrise. Later we enjoy brunch as we make our way through the MacDonnell Ranges to Alice Springs where a choice of Off Train Excursions awaits. Alice is an iconic Red Centre outpost. 1,500 kilometres from the nearest major city, it may be remote, but offers plenty to explore - home to doctors who fly, rivers that run dry, and a cast of colourful characters. Your time in the 'capital out of the outback' offers numerous opportunities to explore its historic legacy and unique environment.
The Ghan - Arrive Darwin
Your day dawns in the tropical north. The pristine wilderness of Katherine is stirring and powerful, and you'll have the chance to explore it from the water or land with your choice of off train experiences. Cruise the jaw-dropping Nitmiluk Gorge, learn more about its ancient Indigenous rock paintings and gain insight into the culture of the traditional owners of Nitmiluk, the Jawoyn people, or discover authentic outback life on a cattle station. As evening falls, arrive in Darwin where we will check into our accommodation for the two nights.
Darwin City Tour - Sunset Dinner Cruise
Today we begin with a tour of Darwin City, before visiting the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Take time to purchase your own lunch and enjoy an afternoon at your leisure. This evening we will gather back together for a spectacular sunset dinner cruise on Darwin Harbour.
Darwin - Home
After a relaxed morning, take one last look at Darwin from a locals eye before we make our way to Darwin Airport to check in for our flights home. On arrival, your transfers will be arranged.
