Experience the ultimate Australian rail & sail adventure

A Gold Class journey on The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two jewels of Australia's Northern Territory - the Red Centre and the tropical Top End. And now Broome and The Kimberley Holidays have combined The Ghan with a wilderness cruise of the magnificent Kimberley coastline for the 2012 Ultimate Rail Cruise holiday. 

The Ghan's timetable makes the most of the daylight hours to offer unsurpassed views of the passing landscape; from the sweeping Adelaide Plains unfolding before your eyes to the majestic Flinders Ranges. Travel through the red earth and cobalt blue skies - the essence of Central Australia. Leave the train to enjoy tours in Alice Springs & Katherine, before arriving for a three night stay in Darwin, the relaxed capital city of the Northern Territory.

Then step on-board the Oceanic Discoverer for a 10 day Kimberley Cruise of a lifetime. This is the perfect opportunity to cruise close to dramatic waterfalls, gorges, wildlife and marine life. Set out on adventures to find the hidden gems of the Kimberley with knowledgeable expedition guides. Swim in the crystal clear gorges, walk to the top of waterfalls, marvel at the ancient Aboriginal rock art or enjoy a mud bath at Ruby Falls. Eat freshly caught Barramundi or mud-crabs superbly prepared by your onboard chef. 

Your Kimberley cruise arrives in the remote outback oasis town of Broome, where the desert meets the sea in stunning colour; here spend three nights at the renowned Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa to watch the famous sunsets over the Indian Ocean. 

Broome and The Kimberley Holidays 18 night package includes a Gold Class rail journey on "The Ghan" (from Adelaide to Darwin), all meals onboard the Ghan and Oceanic Discoverer, three nights accommodation at Mantra on the Esplanade in Darwin, a Litchfield National Park tour, a 'Bombing of Darwin WWII - The Forgotten War' tour, three nights' accommodation at the renowned Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa in Broome, a Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour and a Matso's Broome Brewery Lunch & Beer Tasting Experience. 

Sounds like an incredible and truly unique way to see the most dramatic, unmissable sights this beautiful country of ours has to offer. And there's something that feels very old-world romance about travelling by train, don't you think?!
