GLOBUS 2021: Great Adventure Down Under with the Legendary Ghan Train & Fiji (PTE)

31 Day Tour from Melbourne to Coral Coast

It's easy to lose your train of thought on this all-encompassing, 28-day tour through Australia and New Zealand, especially when it includes world-class cities, extraordinary scenery, unique wildlife, and an incredible overnight rail journey on the legendary The Ghan train-an exhilarating crossing through the heart of the Australian Outback to the tropical coast of the Northern Territory. Other moving Experiences on this over-the-top Down Under vacation include an outback barbecue in the Red Center, a jumping crocodile cruise in Darwin, a snorkeling excursion at the Great Barrier Reef, and a wetlands cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong. In New Zealand, prepare to be moved by a cooked-by-hot-stone Hangi dinner, a gondola ride to the peaks of Queenstown, a cruise through the towering rock walls of Milford Sound, and even a silent boat trip through Waitomo's famous eerily lit Glowworm Caves. Board here for unrivaled views, unexpected experiences, and an unbelievable adventure.

Your last stop on this incredible journey doesn't have to be Auckland. Add a 3-day Monograms vacation to Fiji to your tour of Australia and New Zealand to soak up the fun and sun of the Coral Coast as well as the genuine warmth of the islanders.
