Waterfalls & Wild Frontier Explorer
Experience two of the great journeys through Australia’s desert & coastal regions.
The Ghan will take you from one edge of this continent to the other, through the very centre of Australia. Over 3 unforgettable days from Adelaide to Darwin, the timetable makes the most of the daylight hours to offer unsurpassed views of the passing landscape. Experience the 2 jewels of Australia’s Northern Territory – the Red Centre and the tropical Top End. Witness the deep orange hue of the MacDonnell Ranges near Alice Springs to the outback plains of Tennant Creek to the lush tropical vegetation of Katherine and Darwin.
Cruising the Kimberley coastline onboard the Coral Discoverer or Coral Expeditions I provides an experience to treasure for a lifetime. The coastline is inaccessible by any other means, and will take you to a land untouched for centuries. It remains one of the world’s truly unique cruising regions. A Kimberley cruise will allow you to experience close at hand spectacular gorges, stunning waterfalls, rugged limestone cliffs, crystal clear turquoise waters, vast river systems and unforgettable ancient art sites.
Couple these 2 extraordinary experiences with time in northern Australia’s unique destinations – Darwin & Broome. Darwin is a melting pot of cultural diversity & the hub for the natural attractions of Kakadu, Litchfield &Nitmiluk National Parks. Broome was originally founded in the late 1880’s as a pearling port. And it boasts undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in the world; Cable Beach.
