The Ghan

WELCOME ABOARD THE GHAN

Prepare for a holiday of unimaginable proportions as the legendary Ghan takes you deep into the heart of Australia.

Enjoy the comfort and solitude of your private cabin, lose yourself in conversation with newfound travelling companions, or simply gaze out of the window taking inspiration from the ever changing landscape.

And when the train stops along the way, the adventures begin. Take your time tapping into the rich creative soul of Adelaide. Experience the dramatic scenery of central Australia on the back of a camel and explore the ancient, awe-inspiring wonders of the Northern Territory.

ACCOMMODATION ABOARD THE GHAN

From the moment you step into your Platinum or Gold Class cabin, you can leave your credit card safely tucked away knowing that all food and beverages are covered by your All Inclusive fare – from magnificent gourmet meals prepared by our professional chefs to that cheeky nightcap waiting on your bedside table at the end of the day.

PLATINUM SERVICE
