Your Rail Journey

For 90 years the Ghan has been travelling through Australia’s undiscovered outback, and the epic journey along it’s entirety has become its flagship journey. Travel from coast to coast through fertile rolling hills, red dust covered outback and into the tropical Top End of Australia.

Settle into your private cabin and watch the pastoral lands of South Australia make way for the rocky landscape of the Flinders Ranges over a delicious regionally inspired dinner on board. After being rocked to sleep by the rhythm of the track awake to sunrise over the dessert and a hearty breakfast as you meander through the MacDonnell Ranges and into the Red Centre’s bustling Alice Springs. Here you can join one of the many off train excursions available to you and learn about the historical and cultural significance of this outback post.

Your journey through the Northern Territory continues as you arrive into the pristine wilderness of Katherine with the opportunity to explore the waterways of its famous gorge on another off train excursion. The day culminates with the Ghans evening arrival into the remote city of Darwin where your epic journey comes to an end.
