Across Australia by Train with the Great Barrier Reef (Cairns)

From Sydney, Australia’s largest and most famous city, to Perth, Western Australia’s capital city, this tour through Australia—stopping first at the Great Barrier Reef (Cairns)—is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. You’ll spend three nights each in Cairns, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth; two nights in Adelaide; and two nights aboard the historic Indian Pacific train traveling across Australia.

A highlight of this Australia tour is your train journey from Adelaide to Perth in Gold Service on the legendary Indian Pacific, one of the world’s few truly transcontinental trains. On the world’s longest straight stretch of railway track, sit back, relax, and marvel at the changing landscapes as you travel through the Nullarbor Plain, offering a glimpse into Australia’s remote region. Enjoy Dinner Under the Stars at a remote and beautiful outpost that borders a “small” sheep station of 2.5 million acres—a special experience Globus had included to make sure your Australia vacation is unique.

Other highlights of this Australia tour include an excursion to Kangaroo Island to see Australian sea lions, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and New Zealand fur seals in one of the world’s last unspoiled habitats. In Adelaide, wander among kangaroos, wallabies, emus, and water birds at Cleland Wildlife Park. Explore Melbourne on a walking tour through the city’s famous lanes and arcades—another unique experience Globus includes—and cruise on Sydney Harbour. In Cairns, take a high-speed catamaran to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. There’s time to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, and attend a presentation by a marine biologist.

This Australia tour also includes free time in each city, so you can explore on your own. Just be sure to bring your camera to capture all the memories you’re sure to create.
