The right vacation to Australia can easily transport you to another state of mind, especially if it includes a crocodile cruise in Darwin, a glass-bottom-boat tour at the Great Barrier Reef, a wetlands cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong, and many other exciting modes of transportation. The most moving experience on this grand tour of Australia, however, is an overnight rail journey on the legendary The Ghan Train—an exhilarating crossing through the heart of the Australian Outback to the tropical coast of the Northern Territory. A stop to cruise through the majestic Katherine Gorge offers the perfect opportunity to stretch your legs and imagination. As you venture in every direction on this encompassing tour of Australia—including untamed Tasmania—you’ll also be moved by big-city lights, Red Center sunsets, growling Tasmanian devils, and calm, cuddly koalas. All aboard for an above-and-beyond adventure through the “Land Down Under.”

Destination & Sightseeing

We’ve prepared everything you need for the perfect vacation—from transfers to and from your hotel and included intra-vacation flights to expert Local Guides and included VIP sightseeing access to the world’s iconic sites. Your Globus Tour Director is always there to help you make the most out of your free time!

Your Train The Ghan is an Australian legend and the ultimate journey through the heart of Australia. It takes its name from the pioneering Afghan cameleers who blazed a permanent trail into the “Red Center of Australia” 150 years ago. Experience this fascinating train journey in the comfort of Gold Service, featuring private overnight sleeper cabins, a separate restaurant car, and access to the Outback Explorer Lounge, the perfect place to gather with friends to enjoy a drink as you marvel at the spectacular Australian landscapes. Twin cabins feature upper and lower berths, washbasin, toilet, and shower. Single cabins feature a single berth and washbasin with shared toilet and shower facilities.
Notes:
This vacation visits remote regions where some facilities are not up to the first-class standards you expect from Globus. However, we have selected the best available hotels that satisfy our high standards of cleanliness and comfort. Off-train experiences are subject to change and will be advised by the Tour Director while on tour. During the wet season (December–April), it can be difficult to see crocodiles in the wild.
