Day 1

| Adelaide

Welcome to Adelaide!! Once considered a sleepy city, Adelaide has undergone a rapid transformation with a burgeoning small-bar scene, world-class art and music, and a festival calendar to rival that of any other Australian city. Discover its laneway secrets, take in the stunning flora at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and find delicious treats around every bend. On arrival, transfer to hotel and Check-In.

Day 2

| Adelaide

Discover the rich bounty of the Adelaide Hills with its charming villages, so close to the city. Explore the enchanting town of historic Hahndorf with its unique Bavarian ambiance. The world famous wine region of the Barossa Valley is steeped in history and German heritage, swathed in rolling landscapes of vines, orchards, pasture and bushland and full of great characters. View the grand and historic homesteads of North Adelaide, approach the Barossa Valley through the magnificent Seppeltsfield Estate. A welcome and wine tasting at this historic winery, learn the art of winemaking on a guided tour at Wolf Blass. Uncover the mystery of wines at a tutored wine tasting of Gold Label wines and the award winning Black Label An exclusive preview Penfolds tasting with lunch. Visit Hahndorf, Australia’s oldest German settlement with its Elm tree-lined main street, quaint cottages, inns, cellar doors, craft shops and galleries, artisan cheese and small goods makers, bakers and tea rooms. Delight in the Adelaide Hills’ villages of Crafters, Stirling, Aldgate and Bridgewater.

Day 3

| The Ghan

Today after breakfast we will provide you with Private Transfer from your Hotel to Adelaide Parklands Terminal to board the ultimate experience of “The Ghan”. In 2019, The Ghan marks 90 years of outback crossings. Much has changed since 1929, and today The Ghan offers more than transit between Adelaide to Darwin and vice versa. Onboard you will find sumptuous dining, elegant private cabins, attentive service, and the camaraderie of your fellow travellers. And when the train stops, the adventures begin. Choose from a huge range of included off-train experiences to create your own rich and rewarding personal journey through Australia’s outback and beyond. Departing Adelaide, what lies ahead is rugged, beautiful and spectacular – through the Red Centre to the tropical north of Australia. Settle into your cabin and watch the rolling pastoral lands of South Australia from your window, or meet your fellow travellers in the lounge car. Before long some of the oldest rock formations in the world, the Flinders Ranges, 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.

Day 4

| The Ghan

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. All aboard for brunch as you make your 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.

Day 5

| 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 to complete your epic Australian journey. On arrival, we will transfer you from Darwin Berrimah Terminal to your Hotel.

Day 6

| Darwin

After breakfast, we set out to explorer Darwin & it’s sightseeing’s. Grab yourself the new Croc Explorer Ticket and see the best of Darwin at your leisure with a 24 hour Hop On Hop Off Pass and get up close to see the crocs at Crocosaurus Cove! Combining two essentials of Darwin into a single great value package, you'll be able to make sure you see all of Darwin's top highlights with 11 key stops in and around the city to disembark at. You'll get to visit a great mix of historical landmarks, modern attractions, informative museums and more which you can visit at your own pace. Follow it up with entry to one of Darwin's top attractions - the wildlife-filled Crocosaurus Cove right in the middle of the city - and come face-to-face with these legendary reptiles of Australia's far north. Crocosaurus Cove brings together some of the biggest saltwater crocs in the country for your viewing pleasure and features a range of in-park entertainment. You can watch these incredible creatures being fed twice a day, hold a baby crocodile yourself, take a dip in the "Swimming with Crocs" pool, or learn more about the reptile kingdom at one of the frequent reptile shows.

Day 7

| Darwin

After breakfast, we proceed for a Full Day Tour of Kakadu National Park. World Heritage listed and the largest National Park in Australia, Kakadu is one of the most diverse landscapes you’ll ever experience, and you’ll be amazed at the population of wildlife in the water, on the land and in the air. See some of the most amazing terrain Australia has to offer on your way to and inside Kakadu. Marvel at the concentration of rock art sites that illustrate Aboriginal culture, some dating back 50,000 years. Travelling along the Arnhem Highway, the Marrakai Plains will provide a beautiful backdrop for your journey. Warradjan Cultural Centre - Call in to learn more about the region, Bininj people - Learn about the traditional owners of Kakadu, Yellow Water Billabong Cruise - Join a local guide to spot saltwater crocodiles and colourful birdlife, including sea eagles, brolgas and tiny brilliantly-hued kingfishers.
