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.
