Alice Springs to Darwin
Two days and one night

An early evening departure from the Alice Springs terminal and it is time to enjoy fine, modern Australian cuisine, accompanied by equally fine wine for dinner. And of course, it is also an opportunity, before and after dining, to socialise with your fellow travellers.

Morning breaks and you awake in the tropical north where you are served a refreshing yet hearty breakfast in preparation for the adventures that lay ahead. We stop at the famous Top End town of Katherine where you can enjoy one of a number of Off Train Excursions that take in the Indigenous and early settler history as well as the awesome natural beauty of the area.

Once back onboard, there will be, no doubt, more sharing of your experiences with new and old friends alike before lunch is served and we make our way through lush, green tropics and arrive at the terminal in Darwin in the early evening. 

Darwin to Adelaide
Three days and two nights

A mid-morning departure begins as we pull away from the platform at Darwin and glide through the tropical north.

Soon after departure lunch is served and you can enjoy a fine wine while enjoying the spectacular views before arriving at the truly remarkable Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge, where a number of Off Train Excursions are available to you.

You return to the train by early evening where you can freshen up before dinner and share your experiences with fellow diners.

After your first night’s sleep, awake in the nation’s geographic and spiritual heart, the Red Centre, before arriving at Alice Springs where again, a number Off Train Excursion options await

Return to the train for lunch and a journey through some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscape.

Dinner on the train is followed by an extraordinary night time experience in the outback where you will be able to view the Milky Way like you have never viewed it before. Simply breathtaking.

The journey continues as you sleep and in the morning you are greeted with breakfast and views of the dramatic and ancient Flinders Ranges, before passing through the Mid-North and Clare Valley for a late-morning arrival in Adelaide.
