Luxury train travel, like cruising, is having a renaissance. Join us on this iconic journey from Adelaide to Alice Springs – through rolling green pastures, desert dunes, past remote outback towns to the Red Centre of Australia. All this, while enjoying the comforts of the world-famous Ghan and savouring the best of South Australian produce and wines.

This is the perfect adventure for the less intrepid traveller. Our convoy of modern four-wheel drives, each with its own driver/guide, will take you to some of the most spectacular and remote parts of the Northern Territory, a number of which are only accessible with special permits. Your days will be filled with the glories of nature; your nights, tucked up comfortably in a hotel bed. PERFECT!

Photo Journal

Join Mark Cunich’s journey on the Unconventional Conventions medical conference in the Red Centre and the Top End of Australia.

Travelling up from Adelaide on the Ghan to Alice Springs, Australia’s vast open country is revealed – an incredible landscape shaped into its current form over 500 million years.

The changing hues of the extraordinary Uluru throughout the day are majestic: the rising sun is reflected burgundy, gradually illuminating the rocks into a fiery blaze of orange and then subsiding into deep red and purple tones as the sun sets. At night billions of stars of the Milky Way are complimented by the Field of Light art installation.

Heading up to Arhnem land for a glimpse of the culture of the Aboriginal People who have been telling their stories there for 40,000 years. Finishing the journey off in the harsh, yet beautiful, world of Kakadu.
