Your Rail Journey

As the Ghan travels between Adelaide to Darwin along Australia’s backbone choose to stop in Australia’s Red Centre to explore and experience the vastness of the country’s outback and see the country’s iconic landmarks in the form of Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon.

Travel over nearly 1000 miles of Australia’s fascinating inland terrain over two days. As you depart from Adelaide sit back in your comfortable private cabin and watch the Flinders Ranges pass your window before enjoying your three course meal in the classically styled Queen Adelaide Restaurant. Enjoy some post dinner drinks in the guest lounge before settling down for the night.

The following morning watch the sunrise over the remote reaches of South Australia before a full breakfast or brunch. Your journey ends in Alice Springs giving you the afternoon to explore the unique culture and scenery of this iconic outback town.
