Day 1: Departure City – Adelaide

Your luxurious Aussie escape begins today with your domestic flight to Adelaide, where you will be transferred to your hotel.

Once checked-in, the afternoon is yours to relax and explore this affluent ‘City of Churches’; lose yourself in one of the hip bars tucked away in a tiny alleyway or take a dip in the cool waters of beachy Glenelg.

Day 2: Adelaide – Board the Ghan (L, D)

Get ready to experience all the comforts of your Gold Class cabin today as you board the spectacular Ghan. Once you’ve settled in and the big wheels start turning, make your way to the classically styled Queen Adelaide Restaurant carriage for a delicious lunch, accompanied by your choice of fine wines.

The afternoon is yours to relax, socialise and get acquainted with the novelty of rail travel. After a sumptuous dinner, join other guests for a few late-night drinks or head to your cabin to settle in early and await the sights of your first incredible outback sunrise the next day.

Passengers departing from Adelaide will make their own way to the station for a 12:15pm train departure today.

Day 3: The Centre (B, L, D)

Witness an unforgettable outback sunrise with a steaming cup of coffee this morning and a brief stop in Marla. Back onboard, sink into pure indulgence in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant for brunch and relax as the mallee scrub makes way for the iconic outback scenery of Alice Springs.

Off-board, spend the afternoon at leisure; you could visit local landmarks, take a front row seat a spectacular bird show at the Desert Park or experience a majestic camel ride across ochre land. Back on the train, get to know your fellow passengers in the Outback Explorer Lounge before freshening up for dinner – topped off with a cheeky night cap, of course!

Day 4: Katherine – Darwin (B, L)

Welcome to Katherine! Upon reaching the Northern Territory gaze in wonder at towering sandstone cliffs as you cruise lazily on the Katherine River. Alternatively, spend the day with the local Aboriginal people, sharing their culture, learning to basket weave, spear throw and play the Didgeridoo.

A late lunch awaits back on board, then relax with a glass of fine wine and savour the last few hours of this epic journey as you roll into Darwin at 5:30pm. Transfer to your hotel, and ease back into life on the land with a bit of harbour exploration.

Day 5: Darwin – Jumping Crocodiles Tour & Cruise

Kick back this morning as you slow down to Darwin-time and enjoy the quiet-serenity with an Adelaide River cruise, then keep your cameras at the ready as you get up close and personal with saltwater crocodiles – watch as they leap out of the water to capture their prey!

Day 6: Depart for Home

Your outback expedition comes to an end today. Transfer to the airport for your flight home with a head and heart full of magical memories to cherish.

B = Breakfast, L = Lunch, D = Dinner
