Australia is home to some of the world’s most extraordinary destinations, and right now there’s never been a better time to holiday in our own backyard. Well, this sensational itinerary from ecruising, one of Australia’s leading travel experts, is giving you a chance to do just that.

Next March, get ready to experience an epic Aussie odyssey with ecruising’s incredible 10-night EXCLUSIVE: Kangaroo Island, The Ghan & the Red Centre journey. This captivating tour truly showcases the contrasts of Australia’s cool coast and rolling rugged outback, with Adelaide and Darwin, two of our most charming capital cities, not to mention the quirky charm of the Northern Territory’s Alice Springs.

Commencing in Adelaide on 16 March 2021, your journey begins with an overnight stay at the superbly appointed Stamford Plaza Adelaide. Situated in the heart of the city on Adelaide’s main boulevard, North Terrace, opposite the Adelaide Casino and Parliament House, and within walking distance to the River Torrens, historic parklands and plenty of boutique shopping, the five star hotel is the ideal base from which to explore the City of Churches.

On 17 March farewell Adelaide as you set off for South Australia’s premier tourist destination – Kangaroo Island. Staying at the comfortable Aurora Ozone Hotel located on Kingscote’s pristine foreshore, spend the next 3 days exploring this remarkable island, renowned for its unique wildlife, breath-taking scenery and mouth-watering food. Highlights include a scenic drive to Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, as well as visits to Clifford’s Honey Farm, with its sublime honey, and the unique Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery. Nor would any trip to Kangaroo Island be complete without immersing yourself in its myriad natural attractions. Visit the Seal Bay Conservation Park for an up close and personal acquaintance with Australian Sea Lions; admire the spectacular Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks at Flinders Chase National Park; and take in a guided caves tour at Kelly Hill Conservation Park. Along the way enjoy delicious meal and wine-tastings at some of the Island’s leading restaurants and wineries including Dudley Winery and the acclaimed Two Wheeler Creek Winery.

En route back to Adelaide, a scenic drive up the Fleurieu Peninsula includes stopovers at micro-brewery, Smiling Samoyed Brewery, followed by wine-tasting and lunch at McLaren Vale’s award-winning Coriole Vineyards. Returning to Stamford Plaza Adelaide, spend a day at your leisure discovering the South Australian capital’s many sights and attractions, before preparing to embark on the next phase of your journey, stepping aboard legendary passenger train, The Ghan. Spend your first day watching the rolling pastoral lands of South Australia merge into rugged Mallee scrub. Marvel as the spectacular Flinders Ranges disappear into the horizon, all the while enjoying the solitude of your Gold Service cabin, reading or catching up on your favourite podcast, then mingling with fellow travellers in the classically styled Queen Adelaide Restaurant for a delicious lunch and fine wines.

Wake up to an unforgettable outback sunrise in the most remote reaches of South Australia, and indulge in your spirit of adventure during a stop-over Alice Springs, choosing from a range of Off Train Excursions from a serene camel ride across incredible ochre landscapes or a thrilling helicopter ride^ over the 300-million-year-old MacDonnell Ranges, before arriving into Katherine that evening. Spend your final morning discovering authentic outback life on a cattle station; meet with local traditional land-owners, the Jawoyn people, sharing their culture and learning about bush skills developed over thousands of years; or choose to upgrade your excursion with a helicopter or scenic flight over Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Parks.

Disembarking in Darwin that evening, spend your final 3 nights at the spectacular Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront, exploring the Territory’s tropical capital and surrounds including the World Heritage Listed Kakadu, Australia’s largest National Park, with its plentiful wildlife, diverse landscapes and awe-inspiring 50,000 year old rock art, before flying home on 26 March 2021.
