Here, the top five Dundee experiences to target on your next vacation (but maybe not in a golf cart):

The Ghan

The Ghan travels through the outback

1. The Ghan:

One of the world’s great train journeys, the Ghan (pronounced ga-an as in the eponymous Afghan cameleers who brought camels to Australia to open up the outback) trip from Darwin to Adelaide covers 1851 miles of awe-inspiring Australian landscape, with excursions to Katherine Gorge, Coober Pedy, and Alice Springs along the way.

Eyre Peninsula

The stunning coastline of South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula

2. Eyre Peninsula:

This South Australian region is blessed with stunning coastal scenery, delicious local food (you should definitely try the oysters) and some serious wildlife encounters, no wonder it is called Australia’s Seafood Frontier. Oh, and it has a serious adventurous side, from shark cage diving from Port Lincoln to swimming with dolphins and seals .

Sydney Harbour on a beautiful sunny day. The location of Quay restaurant

3. Quay, Sydney:

If you want to really get a handle on the Sydney food scene then a meal at Quay is a must; the multiple award-winning restaurant has just had a major make-over and the food, under the watchful eye of chef Peter Gilmore, is still exquisite. Book well in advance as wait times for a table can take months.

5. Bamurru Plains:
