The Ghan - Adelaide to Darwin and vice versa

The old-style elegance and wonderful service, the parade of stunning landscapes and intriguing destinations make this journey one of the world’s most epic train rides.

Even if you are not a collector of great train journeys, you will not be able to suppress a feeling of exhilaration and expectation as you board The Ghan in either Adelaide or Darwin. You’re about to travel – in real style – from the top of the continent to the bottom (or vice versa) on a mighty rail behemoth. 30 carriages long and stretching almost 800 metres from top to tail, The Ghan will be your mobile home for the next three days, taking you almost 3,000 km through some of the country’s most iconic scenery.

Make The Ghan part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Australia and you’ll see the fertile plains around Adelaide, the fiery Red Centre, Alice Springs, the remote outback, the spiritual Nitmiluk Gorge….
