2022 Season

Exploring Australia with the Legendary Ghan Train, Southern Lights & Fiji


tour: PX1E 24 Day Tour from Melbourne to Coral Coast
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 Ghan Train—an exhilarating crossing through the heart of the Australian Outback to the tropical coast of the Northern Territory. A stop at 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.”

Spend an extra night in Hobart for the chance to witness Mother Nature cast her magical aurora australis (southern lights) across the night sky of Tasmania—one of the best places on earth to see this heavenly light show. Includes two evening excursions with a Local Expert to learn how the aurora australis differs from the northern lights (aurora borealis). Enjoy warm drinks and treats and learn how to take the perfect photograph of the lights dancing across the horizon.

End your trip with a relaxing 3-night Monograms independent vacation in Fiji, including a flight from Sydney to Nadi, Fiji, transfers to/from your resort on the Coral Coast, first-class accommodations, breakfast daily, and the guidance and assistance of an expert Local Host®. Sightseeing with a Local Guide includes a jet-boat cruise on the Sigatoka River and a visit to a Fijian village with lunch.
