The Ghan (train)

The Ghan, operated by Great Southern Railway, is the name of the train that crosses the continent in a South-North direction, from Adelaide to Alice Springs and up to Darwin. But it is not just a train; it is a legend that was created over 70 years ago. First it only operated from Adelaide to Alice Springs and in 2004, tracks were extended to Darwin. When boarding this train, guests step into another world as they embark on an epic trip, experiencing one of the most captivating train journeys on the planet. When taking the whole journey from Adelaide to Darwin, guests spend two nights onboard this wonderful train. During the trip there is the opportunity to take several side trips especially designed to fit in with The Ghan’s timetable. But even if these offers are not taken up, travelers are still amazed by the difference in scenery; from the green and historical South to the dry red sand of the Centre and to the lush and tropical Top End. No matter which type of service passengers choose; Gold Service, Red Service, Daynighter seat or the new and exclusive Platinum Service, views and ever changing landscapes will make this journey unforgettable.
