The Ghan train through central Australia
Steve Collins chats to Giselle Whiteaker of Journey Beyond about The Ghan luxury train.
Australia is a huge country, and one of the best ways to go from south to north through the centre is to take the luxury train called The Ghan.
The train runs from Adelaide in South Australia to Darwin in the Northern Territory (and vice versa), and is a journey that will both impress and surprise you. It is not just a train trip, but a wonderful experience that takes place both onboard the train and during excursions off the train in places such as Coober Pedy, Alice Springs and Katherine.
Travelling on The Ghan is a true adventure that is completed without any hardship whatsoever.
El Questro in the East Kimberley
Steve Collins reminisces about his visit to El Questro, a large working cattle station and tourist park in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia.
Measuring 80 km north to south and 60 km east to west, El Questro is big enough to be the world’s 29th smallest country. Scenically, it is far more impressive than most of those countries it dwarfs.
The reasons for that is that it is home to many very impressive gorges, rivers, creeks, waterfalls, thermal springs and an abundance of Australian tropical flora and fauna, much of which can’t be seen elsewhere.
Game of Thrones Studio Tour Belfast
Steve Collins in conversation with Brad Kelly, General Manager of the Game of Thrones Studio Tour in Belfast.
Game of Thrones is, arguably, one of the finest and most popular television shows ever produced. Now, the Game of Thrones Studio Tour has opened in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Located at one of the acclaimed series’ original filming locations at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, Game of Thrones Studio Tour takes fans closer to the Seven Kingdoms than ever before. Guests can step inside the iconic Great Hall at Winterfell where Jon Snow was proclaimed the “King in the North,” see Daenerys Targaryen’s imposing Dragonstone throne, delve into the incredible props, weaponry and visual effects of Game of Thrones and learn more about the skills and craftmanship that helped bring the show from script to screen. The immersive experience brings Westeros to life and will evoke the show’s epic scale -- from King’s Landing, Winterfell, Dragonstone, The Wall and the lands beyond.
Bali re-opens to international visitors
Steve Collins in conversation with Sylvain Padeloup, General Manager of the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Resort.
Bali in Indonesia is considered to be one of the world’s best holiday destinations. Due to Covid, Bali has been closed to international visitors for quiet a while, but now Bali is re-opening to international travel.
During this in-depth conversation with Sylvain we discuss how Bali and Lombok have coped during the two years that Covid has forced them to operate with a minimum number of guests.
Bali has suffered a great deal over the past couple of years but is now set to flourish again.
Kimberley Quest discover the breathtaking
Steve Collins chats with Clare Marquis the General Manager of Kimberley Quest.
Kimberley Quest explores the bays and rivers of the remote Kimberley in Western Australia’s Northwest, and it’s a most unique and wonderful experience.
Kimberley Quest is a small cruise ship of nine cabins, catering for a maximum of 18 guests. The vessel has a shallow draft, which allows it to navigate shallow waters to get up very close to the stunning waterfalls that drop from towering cliffs into the pristine waters of those remote waterways.
