The fifteen-day stay in Darwin will give the crew the opportunity to visit the colossal monolith Uluru, one of the great natural wonders of the world, located near Alice Springs, smack in the middle of Australia.


Certainly the most romantic way of getting to the site is The Ghan Train, which leaves Darwin every Wednesday for Alice Springs.
