DAY 1. BOARD THE GHAN IN ADELAIDE

Step aboard The Ghan in Adelaide for your unforgettable adventure to the Top End. As the train leaves the city heading for the Flinders Ranges and beyond, it’s your chance to settle in to your cabin and watch the changes in landscape from your very own window. OVERNIGHT: 2 nights The Ghan (L,D)

DAY 2. THE GHAN, ALICE SPRINGS

After your first night enjoying the fine dining and relaxed luxury of this iconic train, you’ll wake to an amazing outback sunrise at Marla – a remote outpost 160 kilometres from the Northern Territory border that marks the start of the Oodnadatta Track. Enjoy more incredible outback scenery before arriving into Alice Springs early in the afternoon to enjoy an Off Train Experience that reveals more of this historic outback town. (B,L,D)

As you head further north into the tropics, prepare to experience one of the Top End’s most impressive natural wonders near Katherine. The stunning Nitmiluk Gorge lies within the massive 292,000 hectares of Nitmiluk National Park. You’ll have the chance to explore it from the water with a guided cruise – an Off Train Experience you’ll never forget. A few hours later, you’ll arrive in Darwin for a transfer to your accommodation. OVERNIGHT: 2 nights DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin (B,L)

It’s time to visit one of the world’s most incredible natural environments. As you travel along the Arnhem Highway south-east of Darwin the anticipation builds. Soon you’ll be in the heart of the world-famous Kakadu National Park enjoying a full day of immersive experiences. You’ll cruise the Yellow Water Billabong, search for saltwater crocodiles, see a variety of informative displays depicting the rich Aboriginal history of the area at the Warradjan Cultural Centre, and be guided to ancient rock art galleries at Nourlangie. OVERNIGHT: 1 night Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel (B,L)

On your way to join the Guluyambi Cruise on the East Alligator River, you’ll visit a stunning lookout to take in the majestic vistas of the renowned Kakadu wetlands. Later, with special permission of the traditional owners, enjoy the privilege of going ashore in Arnhem Land. To cap off an enriching day, you’ll visit the Marrawuddi Art Gallery before returning to Darwin. OVERNIGHT: 1 night DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin (L)
