Journey through the outback

On the rails since 1929, The Ghan, regarded as a national treasure, travels deep into the Australian landscape between Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin on the Adelaide-Darwin railway. The Ghan, with 30 guest carriages, is named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route more than 150 years ago.

Onboard, both the Platinum and the Gold class cabin tickets are all-inclusive; this means gourmet meals prepared in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant by professional chefs and a complimentary selection of wines, boutique beers, and other beverages. If you choose to travel as a Platinum guest, you will have access to the Platinum Club where you will be served three five-course meals per day.
