Settle in to the comforts of The Ghan, relax in your cabin or mingle with fellow travellers in the Outback Explorer Lounge. Enjoy lunch ahead of your first Off Train Excursion in Katherine. In a region renowned for jaw-dropping natural assets, Katherine boasts one of the Top End’s best – the incredible Nitmiluk Gorge lies within the massive 292,000 hectares of the Nitmiluk National Park, and you have the chance to explore it from the water with guided cruise options. Alternatively, from April to October, join the Katherine Outback Experience and take part in informative discussions about what it’s really like to work this tough, isolated, arid land.

Retreat to your favourite hiding spot, relax by the pool or watch one of the guest entertainers. (B,L,D)
 
DAY 9 SEA PRINCESS ®, HOBART
Tasmania’s capital has much in common with Sydney. Founded but a few years later, Hobart also owes its origins to the establishment of a penal colony - and its natural setting is just as impressive. Seen from its fine deep-water harbor, 
Hobart spills over the lower reaches of the Derwent Valley as Mt. Wellington towers in the background. Much of the city’s heritage is centered on the historic waterfront. North of the city stretches the vast parkland of the Queen’s Domain. Many of Tasmania’s other attractions are within easy reach of Hobart. With more than 90 National Trust buildings, Hobart, founded in 1804, combines colonial character with a sophisticated metropolitan lifestyle. (B,L,D)
 
DAY 10 SEA PRINCESS ®, PORT ARTHUR
Port Arthur is named for George Arthur, the Lieutenant Governor of Tasmania from 1823 to 1837. It was Arthur who converted a small convict lumber station on the Tasman Peninsula into the most feared penal colony in Australia. Preserved today as the Port Arthur Historical Site, the then state-of-the-art prison was designed to hold repeat offenders in isolation and hard labor. When it closed in 1877, it marked the end of a dark chapter in English and Australian history. Both Port Arthur is also your gateway to the wild and scenic Tasman Peninsula. Its wave-lashed coast is the site of spectacular rock formations such as Tasman Arch, the Tessellated Pavement and the Devil’s Kitchen. The peninsula is also home to small farms, superb fruit orchards and acclaimed vineyards. (B,L,D) Note: Port Arthur is an anchorage port. Passengers transfer to shore via ship’s tender.
 
DAY 11 SEA PRINCESS ®, BURNIE
Located on Bass Strait, Burnie is Tasmania’s fourth-largest city and a major port. Burnie, surrounded by prime productive farmlands is the gateway to scenic northwest Tasmania, an area rich in picturesque old villages, homesteads and historic homes. Inland lies the rainforest and wilderness of Cradle Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site. (B,L,D)
 
DAY 12 SEA PRINCESS ®, AT SEA
Revisit your favourite restaurants, catch that last onboard performance or enjoy just one more cocktail. (B,L,D)
 
DAY 13 SEA PRINCESS ®, ADELAIDE
