6 Day 

Ultimate Luxury Outback Adventure

The Australian Outback

The Australian outback - a place where plains stretch to eternity and people can yarn forever. It's called a sunburnt country, but even in the scorched desert you'll find purple vegetation and lush green waterholes. You'll also find red hills and fiery sunsets, dinosaur footprints and Aboriginal carvings, colourful characters and rustic pubs. Here in the wide, open spaces, a new adventure awaits you at every turn.

Day 1

Spend the day in Darwin, enjoying the balmy weather and eclectic food and culture at outdoor festivals, waterfront restaurants, tropical parklands and art precincts.  Get a taste of Darwin at Mindil Beach Markets, sail Darwin Harbour and trace the region's dramatic history at museums. Darwin is gateway to

Litchfield National Park, the Tiwi Islands, Kakadu and Arnhem Land as well as cross-continent journeys like the Ghan, Explorers Highway and Savannah Way.

Other options in Darwin include feeding some of the world’s biggest saltwater crocodiles, take a selfie with a baby croc and be lowered into the water with the prehistoric reptiles in the “Cage of Death” at Crocosaurus Cove. Immerse yourself in Northern Territory Aboriginal Culture where you can learn about bush tucker and traditional medicine, try blowing a didgeridoo, play the clapsticks, throw a spear and see basket and dilly bag making demonstrations. 

 

Overnight: Darwin - Doubletree by Hilton Esplanade - One Bedroom Junior Suite

Day 2

Your journey aboard the legendary Ghan begins at Darwin Rail Station where you'll take the small but momentous step from platform to carriage.

Friendly staff will lead you through corridors to your comfortable private cabin where you can take your time settling in and exploring the amenities as the view outside your window begins its smooth and spectacular transformation.

Your first stop in Katherine will give you the opportunity to experience your first included Off Train Excursion to the magnificent and spiritual Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge. Or to upgrade your excursion with a helicopter flight or scenic flight over Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Parks, providing unparalleled views of the geographic wonders that gave rise to many of the aboriginal Dreamtime stories.

Wake up to a new view outside your window, in a world which feels a million miles from home. An outback sunrise could be one of the most spectacular you'll ever see, setting the tone for the day ahead.

After coffee, a juice and a sumptuous breakfast you'll arrive in Alice Springs ready for another day of exploration.
