10 Feb 19 Adelaide, Australia. After hotel check out, you'll be transferred to the train station. Step aboard the legendary Ghan at noon and take time acquainting yourself with our friendly staff and your comfortable private cabin. Once you've settled in and the big wheels start turning, make your way to the classically styled Queen Adelaide Restaurant carriage for a delicious lunch, accompanied by your choice of fine wines. With all meals and beverages included in your Gold Service fare, you can afford to leave your credit card tucked away in your cabin.

Watch the rolling pastoral lands of South Australia merge into rugged mallee scrub. Marvel as the spectacular Flinders Ranges disappear into the horizon, all the while enjoying the solitude of your cabin, reading or catching up on your favourite podcast, then mingling with fellow travellers in the Lounge car for afternoon tea.

A three course meal in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant is bound to satisfy and as darkness falls outside the train's windows, talk inevitably turns to the impressive outback gourmet menu. Entrees include a South Australian Regional Seafood Tasting Plate, a succulent rack of lamb for mains, and your choice of desserts including a regional cheese plate with Barossa Valley brie, Limestone Coast clothed cheddar and Lobethal goat blue.

11 Feb 19 The Centre, Australia. Wake up with a coffee or juice and witness an unforgettable outback sunrise at our new morning stop in Marla in the remote reaches of SA. For those travelling Southbound, you'll be treated to an amazing showcase of outback stars in Manguri, a remote town around 40kms from Coober Pedy.

Back on board, it's time for brunch. Enjoy a light bite from the extensive menu or order something a little more substantial - perhaps a full breakfast complete with eggs just the way you like them. And while you're in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant why not try the Belgium chocolate waffle with strawberries, chocolate saucy and double cream? You are on holiday after all! After a few more coffees, fresh juices and more incredible outback scenery, you'll be arriving in iconic Alice Springs.

Here you can glimpse the history of yesteryear, the thriving culture and unique lifestyle of today. Visit local landmarks, or take a front row seat at a spectacular bird show at the Desert Park. To fully appreciate this breathtaking part of Australia, you might like to take a helicopter ride over the ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Experience this 300 million year old mountain range's unique beauty with 360 degree views. Alternatively experience a serene camel ride across incredible ochre land or continue further into the interior of Australia and visit the iconic Uluru and Kata Juta.

Back on the train there's time to talk through the day's discoveries with newfound friends in the Outback Explorer Lounge before freshening up for dinner in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant. Tonight, try the Roasted kangaroo fillet with crocodile boudin blanc, potato purée and quandong jus. Crocodile has long been a Northern Territory bushfood staple. The crocodile boudin blanc (white sausage) featured on the menu has been created in collaboration with award-winning smallgoods purveyor, Barossa Fine Foods.

12 Feb 19Katherine to Darwin. Welcome to Katherine! Upon reaching the Northern Territory you'll enjoy another full breakfast before leaving the train for a day of cultural delights. Endless options await in Katherine.

Enjoy a leisurely cruise on the Katherine River gazing in wonder at towering sandstone cliffs. Alternatively, gain an insight into the culture and ways of the traditional owners of Nitmiluk, the Jawoyn people, with an exclusive cultural experience. Spend the day with the Aboriginal people, sharing their culture, learning their ways and trying some of the skills developed over thousands of years. Activities include basket weaving; spear throwing, fire lighting, painting, and learning the Didgeridoo.

You can choose to upgrade your excursion with a helicopter or scenic flight over Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Parks where aside from magnificent views, you may witness 'Bolung', the rainbow serpent who is believed to inhabit the deep green pools found in the Second Gorge.

A late lunch awaits back on board – possibly the Grilled goldband snapper fillet, steamed asparagus spears, with orange, cranberry, parsley and papitas cous cous with a saffron aioli. Then kick backback, and savour the last few hours of this epic journey.

Roll into Darwin at 5.30pm then ease back into 'life on the land' exploring the harbour, the bars and restaurants of this laid back Top End city. As you board off the train, you'll be met and transferred to your hotel. Overnight in Darwin.

13 Feb 19 Darwin, Australia. Atfer hotel check out, you'll be met and transferred to the airport
