The Ghan, the legendary rail journey through the heart of Australia.

The transcontinental journey from Adelaide to Darwin covers 2,979 kilometres and in either direction you will have two nights aboard The Ghan. As you relax you will marvel at spectacular Australian landscapes; from the red hued vistas of the MacDonnell Ranges surrounding a town called Alice, gateway to Uluru and the Red Centre, to the magnifcent gorges of Katherine and the tropical splendour of the Top End.

The Ghan caters to all travellers needs, offering a choice in accommodation, from the new Platinum Service offering a luxurious and spacious twin share or double sleeper cabin, classic Gold Service where guests enjoy twin or single sleeper cabins, to Red Service which offers sleeper cabins and Day/Nighter seats, providing affordable quality travel options.

This legendary train evokes a frontier spirit, a romantic connection to the land, and travelling on it creates a moving and unforgettable life experience.

In 2019, The Ghan celebrates 90 years of outback adventure, its legend stemming from the 1930s when the first Afghan cameleers arrived in Australia. On that momentous journey, the train was dubbed ‘The Afghan Express’ and then shortened to the legend it is today, ‘The Ghan’.

Today you can become part of this celebrated history, following in the tracks of those pioneers as you journey through Australia’s red heart.

Regarded as one of the world’s greatest rail journeys, The Ghan delivers so much more than an extended train ride. It promises access to parts of Australia no other holiday can come close to – the perfect balance of comfort and adventure culminating in an experience that will move you in every sense of the word.
