Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Adelaide

The moment you step on board the Ghan you are whisked away to an era of pioneering travel. Take time to settle into your own private cabin and sit back and relax. As you leave behind the cityscape of Adelaide, you will see the landscape change as you travel through the pastoral fields of South Australia’s mid north.

Enjoy this time to meet fellow travellers in the Explorers Lounge over a pre-dinner drink before dining in the Queen Adelaide restaurant where you will be treated to a three course regionally inspired dinner with all-inclusive fine wines and beverages.

When you return to your cabin you will find it transformed from its day configuration all ready for a good night’s sleep.

Day 2 - Alice Springs

Wake up early to watch the sun rise over the desert – there is a chance to disembark the train to take in the wander of this special experience at Mala.

Brunch is served on the train and soon you are crossing the state border and into the Northern Territory.  The Ghan then continues to meander through the MacDonnell Ranges and arrive at Alice Springs when your journey ends in the early afternoon.
