What You’ll Love…

Part One: Two nights at the Hilton Darwin with sunset dinner cruise

Stay at one of the best addresses in Darwin, right in the city centre. Situated beside the Esplanade and harbour, Hilton Darwin is just moments from Bicentennial Park and only 15 minutes’ drive from the airport, making it the ideal base for exploring the Northern Territory.

Part of the world-renowned Hilton collection and with views over Darwin Harbour, guests can enjoy easy access to local dining, shopping and entertainment options, in addition to on-site facilities including a 10th-floor outdoor swimming pool plus a stylish bar and restaurant offering modern Australian cuisine.

Spend two nights in a Guest Room, featuring cosmopolitan views, an en-suite bathroom, comfortable bedding, HD TV with two in-room movies per day and Wi-Fi – everything you need to relax before your big adventure. Wake up to daily breakfast and enjoy 25% off food and beverages throughout your stay (excludes room service).

On one night of your stay you’ll be treated to a sunset dinner cruise aboard the ‘Charles Darwin’ catamaran, where you’ll enjoy a delicious Territory-style buffet (beverages are available for purchase) with Australian seafood and local produce alongside a bird’s eye view of the famous Darwin sunset.

VIP Upgrade: Upgrade your package to stay in a Harbour View Guest Room, which offers stunning harbour vistas, plush king or twin double beds laid with 250 thread-count sheets, an HDTV, a complimentary pillow menu for your comfort and local artwork.

Part Two: The Ghan with Gold Service Cabin, all-inclusive beverages and dining and incredible Off-Train Excursions

Now, it’s time to embark on one of the world’s most legendary and sought-after train journeys: The Ghan.

Once on board, settle into your Gold Service Twin Cabin – a beautifully appointed, comfortable sleeper cabin featuring a private en-suite bathroom with complimentary toiletries, upper and lower sleeping berths that convert to a three-seater lounge by day, plus in-cabin power outlets and music channels with journey audio commentary available.

Travelling solo? Please select the Solo Traveller option when booking to stay in a Gold Service Single Cabin, a compact sleeper cabin featuring a bed that converts to a seat by day, private vanity and shared shower/toilet facilities located at the end of the carriage.

You’ll enjoy all-inclusive dining onboard in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant, available exclusively to Gold Service guests. Indulge in multi-course breakfast, lunch and dinner created by the onboard chefs who work closely with local suppliers to create fresh, modern Australian meals that reflect the cuisine of the regions you traverse. Picture crocodile boudin blanc sausage served with potato purée, grilled saltwater barramundi with potato fondant, a tantalising buffalo curry, mango and lemon myrtle cheesecake and much more.

You’re also entitled to a wide selection of beverages, served in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant or Outback Explorer Lounge car. Select from fine Australian wines, beer, and base spirits, as well as non-alcoholic drinks, tea and coffee as you watch the beautiful landscape change.

And that’s not to mention the most spectacular part: the journey itself. You’ll head coast-to-coast from Darwin down to Adelaide, starting in the tropics of the north before travelling down through the Red Centre to Adelaide in the south.

Stop at the Top End township of Katherine with its stunning outback scenery, gorges and waterfalls, and discover more about its Indigenous history. Admire rugged and beautiful scenery as you journey through the Red Centre. Enjoy Off-Train Excursions in the incredible Alice Springs against a backdrop of red earth and mountain ranges, before stopping in the desert at nightfall to witness the incredibly clear constellation of stars twinkling overhead. Finally, admire the changing landscape as red tones turn to green and you arrive in Adelaide, South Australia.
