2023 Season

Great Adventure Down Under with the Legendary Ghan Train & Southern Lights


tour: PT1
29 Day Tour from Melbourne to Auckland
It’s easy to lose your train of thought on this all-encompassing, 28-day tour through Australia and New Zealand, especially when it includes world-class cities, extraordinary scenery, unique wildlife, and an incredible 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. Other moving Experiences on this over-the-top Down Under vacation include an outback barbecue in the Red Center, a jumping crocodile cruise in Darwin, a snorkeling excursion at the Great Barrier Reef, and a wetlands cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. In New Zealand, prepare to be moved by a cooked-by-hot-stone Hangi dinner, a gondola ride to the peaks of Queenstown, a cruise through the towering rock walls of Milford Sound, and even a silent boat trip through Waitomo’s famous eerily lit Glowworm Caves. Board here for unrivaled views, unexpected experiences, and an unbelievable adventure.

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.
