Read reviews of Sir John Forrest Private Carriage (Darwin to Adelaide) from other travellers:
Accommodation on board was excellent. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you without being too in your face. Food was excellent with plenty of variety. Whistle stop tours were terrific. Boredom on board was not a problem. The best thing we could have done was get a private carriage. Shame it was only for two nights. Love to do it again!
