DAY 1 – BOARD THE GHAN EXPEDITION IN DARWIN

Settle into the comforts of The Ghan, by relaxing in your cabin or mingling with fellow guests in the Outback Explorer Lounge. Enjoy lunch ahead of your Off Train Experience in Katherine. In a region renowned for jawdropping natural assets, Katherine boasts one of the Top End’s best – the incredible Nitmiluk Gorge. OVERNIGHT: 3 nights The Ghan (L,D)

DAY 2 – THE GHAN EXPEDITION, ALICE SPRINGS

Your arrival into Alice Springs after breakfast provides you with time to explore the iconic town in the red heart of Australia. Your Off Train Experience choices today include visiting the spectacular Alice Springs Desert Park and Reptile Centre, walking Simpsons Gap, and exploring the historic Telegraph Station and Royal Flying Doctor Service. In the evening, dine under a million stars. (B,L,D)

DAY 3 – THE GHAN EXPEDITION, COOBER PEDY

After a morning stop at the outback outpost of Manguri, you’ll venture into the weird and wonderful opal mining township of Coober Pedy, where more than half of the residents live underground. Here, you’ll enjoy a day of discovery, and a gourmet lunch in the most unique of locations: underground. Discover the diversity of Coober Pedy’s spectacular Breakaways on your guided walking tour, taking in the colourful low hills that from a distance look as if they have ‘broken away’ from the higher ground of the reserve. This area was once an inland sea and over time, has transformed into a dramatic landscape that changes colour with the passing of the sun, creating an almost surreal panorama. Dinner is served back on the train, where you can enjoy a nightcap as your journey continues. (B,L,D)

DAY 4 – THE GHAN EXPEDITION, ADELAIDE

After completing the famous north-south crossing of the interior you will arrive in Adelaide. Check in to your accommodation before exploring the food and wine capital of South Australia at your leisure. OVERNIGHT: 3 nights Hilton Adelaide (B)

DAY 5 – BAROSSA VALLEY

Travel through the Adelaide Hills to the Barossa Valley to experience a day of historical wineries, regional food, beautiful scenery and the people who make the Barossa Valley such a special destination. The first tasting is at Château Yaldara, one of the most photographed historic buildings in South Australia. Then, we traverse picturesque scenery and cross Jacobs Creek, heading towards the heart of the valley and the historic township of Tanunda. More internationally acclaimed wines are on the menu at the beautiful Peter Lehmann winery, paired with a lunch platter of local produce. After a stop a Mengler’s Hill Lookout to admire the valley views, we head onwards to a wine-tasting experience at Lambert Estate Wines. Our final destination is Wolf Blass Wines, where we’ll explore the state-of-the-art cellar door of the multi-award-winning wine brand. (B,L)

DAY 6 – LEISURE DAY

Make the most of a free day to explore Adelaide, the food and wine capital of South Australia. Stroll along the cultural boulevard of North Terrace, home to the South Australian Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Not far from here is Rundle Street and Rundle Mall, where you can indulge in some retail therapy or quench your thirst at one of the many bars or restaurants. Alternatively, the beachside suburb of Glenelg is an easy 25-minute tram ride away. (B)

DAY 7 – FAREWELL

Your journey comes to an end this morning as you farewell Adelaide and check out of your accommodation after breakfast, leaving with memories of awe-inspiring landscapes and unique outback experiences that will last a lifetime. (B)
