A Gold Class journey on The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two jewels of Australia’s Northern Territory – the Red Centre and the tropical Top End. The Ghan’s timetable makes the most of the daylight hours to offer unsurpassed views of the passing landscape; from the sweeping Adelaide Plains unfolding before your eyes to the majestic Flinders Ranges. Travel through the red earth and cobalt blue skies – the essence of Central Australia. Leave the train to enjoy tours in Alice Springs & Katherine, before arriving in Darwin, the relaxed capital city of the Northern Territory. Here, spend three nights at Mantra on the Esplanade, experience the city’s fascinating history on a ‘Frontline Australia, WWII Bombing of Darwin’ tour and see spectacular tropical rainforest & waterfalls on a tour through Litchfield National Park.
Step on-board the Oceanic Discoverer for a 10 day Kimberley Cruise of a lifetime. This is the perfect opportunity to cruise close to dramatic waterfalls, gorges, wildlife and marine life. Set out on adventures to find the hidden gems of the Kimberley with knowledgeable expedition guides. Swim in the crystal clear gorges, walk to the top of waterfalls, marvel at the ancient Aboriginal rock art or enjoy a mud bath at Ruby Falls. Eat freshly caught Barramundi or mud-crabs superbly prepared by your onboard chef. Oceanic Discoverer is Coral Princesses’ flagship vessel, with a choice of superior accommodation and on-board facilities including a cocktail bar, spa pool, large sundeck, reference library and lecture lounge.
Your Kimberley Cruise arrives in the remote outback oasis town of Broome, where the desert meets the sea in stunning colour; here spend three nights at the renowned Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa to watch the famous sunsets over the Indian Ocean. Discover how the beautiful Australian South Sea Cultured Pearl is produced on a Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour and enjoy a Lunch and Beer Tasting Experience at Matso’s Broome Brewery.
