The Ghan holidays

The Ghan train travelling north to Darwin, Australia

Roaring across the dusty desertscapes from Adelaide to Darwin, The Ghan is one of the greatest ways to get under the skin of Australia’s Red Centre. Most importantly, a ride on this stunning locomotive promises pure luxury – after all, there are few better ways to soak up those mesmerising Outback views than sitting back with a glass of Oz wine in your hand. This is Australian adventure at its most authentic; it’s no surprise The Ghan and its pioneering tracks are renowned as one of the greatest rail expeditions in the world. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to Journey Beyond…

Ride The Ghan your way

The Ghan offers a unique insight into the ever-changing landscapes of Australia’s Red Centre, while also showcasing some of the best food and drink Down Under. It also incorporates the chance to explore destinations like Alice Springs, Coober Pedy, Adelaide and Darwin with a range of ‘Off Train Experiences’.

You can choose to begin your journey amid the wine-soaked valleys of Adelaide, or in the Tropical Top End: Darwin. What you see along the way is up to you too; perhaps embark on a Nitmiluk Gorge Cruise in Katherine, go stargazing in Manguri or watch the sunrise in Marla. The recently-introduced Ghan Expedition offers extended time in several destinations too, meaning you can really make the most of this epic rail journey. The best bit? How you want to spend your time onboard, and beyond, is entirely up to you.
