Elite Traveler Winter 2021

You’ll spend two nights at Alice Springs before boarding The Ghan again to head north towards Darwin. DAY 11-14 Arrive in Darwin and explore the Northern Territory’s capital — visit the myriad National Parks for a refreshing dip in natural pools and waterfalls, or head to the city’s museums and art galleries. Board the Charles Darwin , a catamaran, for a territory-style dinner, and take in the bewitching Darwin sunset. The following day, head to Kakadu National Park. Cruise along YellowWater Billabong (thought to be named for the shade of color it turns when churned up by water buffalo), part of the South Alligator River floodplain. The area is rich in wildlife, flora and fauna, and is one of the best spots for fishing in all of Australia. On your penultimate day, explore the World Heritage area of Ubirr, known for its staggering collection of Aboriginal rock paintings. You’ll climb up through ancient ‘galleries’ to see for yourself (as well as marvel at the views over the surrounding wetlands). Join the Guluyambi Cruise and, with special permission of the traditional owners, experience the privilege of going ashore in Arnhem Land. Stop at Marrawuddi Art Gallery before returning to Darwin, where your Australian adventure comes to an end. Platinum Cabin from $9,935.
