Prepare to experience one of the region’s most impressive natural wonders near Katherine for an afternoon of unique touring/ Prepare to experience one of the region's most impressive natural wonders near Katherine.

Overnight stay aboard The Ghan.

Lunch, Dinner

Next stop is Alice Springs, where more Off Train Excursions await. Explore Simpsons Gap, tour the town attractions, or get up close to some of the Red Centre’s native wildlife. Dinner on the train is followed by an extraordinary evening experience in the outback where you will see the Milky Way like you have never seen it before. Simply breathtaking! Choose from a range of "Off Train Experiences" in Alice Springs. Alice is an iconic Red Centre outpost. 1,500 kilometres from the nearest major city, it may be remote, but offers plenty to explore – home to doctors who fly, rivers that run dry, and a cast of colourful characters. Your time in the ‘capital out of the outback’ offers numerous opportunities to explore its historic legacy and unique environment. Off Train Experience in Manguri: Please note, this stop is only for guests travelling from Darwin to Adelaide in March and November only. Not a formal Off Train Experience as such but an added bonus that is included for March and November departures only! Magnificent Manguri is a rail siding 30 minutes outside of Coober Pedy in South Australia and in this instance, darkness is our friend. The outback’s pitch-black sky unsullied by man-made lights mean the stars out here are truly something to behold. The Ghan pulls into Manguri after dinner and guests are invited off the train to enjoy a nightcap around a bonfire while taking in the brilliant carpet of bright stars on a clear night. You’re unlikely to find yourself in Manguri at any other time so while this is a short stop, it’s the kind of stop that adds to a very memorable journey on The Ghan. Overnight stay aboard The Ghan.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

From your cabin window this morning you'll see a dramatic change in landscape, as the rich ochre tones of the outback make way for the green fields of South Australia. Enjoy a leisurely brunch as you pass through the majestic Flinders Ranges and prepare for your mid-morning arrival into Adelaide, completing one of the world's great travel experiences. In the Smart Southern City, you can extend your experience with a holiday package to the Barossa Valley, fascinating Kangaroo Island, or and expertly curated tour of this food and wine loving capital.
