The Top End is a land of ancient wonders, legend and landscape, providing an eternal draw for travellers.
An early evening departure from Alice Springs Terminal and it is time to enjoy modern Australian cuisine and regional fine wines onboard. And of course, there’s time to socialise with your fellow traveller before retiring to your comfortable private cabin for the night.
The pristine wilderness of Katherine is stirring and powerful, and you’ll have the chance to explore it from the water or land with your choice of off train experiences. Cruise the jaw-dropping Nitmiluk Gorge, learn more about its ancient Indigenous rock paintings and gain insight into the culture of the traditional owners of Nitmiluk, the Jawoyn people; or discover a slice of authentic outback life on a cattle station for a unique window to the inner working of life in the outback. You’ll hear rollicking stories, watch a horse and cattle dog demonstration, and sit back and relax with a live music performance of Aussie anthems. Once back on board, share lunch and laughter with new and old friends as the train makes its way through lush, green tropics to arrive at the terminal in Darwin in the early evening.
