The Ghan – Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions

Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions presents The Ghan, one of the world’s great rail journeys – an experience of luxury, discovery and romance that literally crosses the heart of the world’s largest island continent.

Guests board The Ghan in either Adelaide or Darwin to journey over three leisurely days, achieving a north-south journey from sea to shining sea via the red expanses of the outback.
Marvel at the spectacular Australian landscapes: from the lush South Australian Winelands, through the rich reds of the MacDonnell Ranges surrounding Alice Springs into the lush emeralds of the tropical north.
Enjoy the attractions of Adelaide and Darwin, with ‘Whistle Stop’ tours in Alice Springs (the desert city), and Katherine, home to remarkable Nitmiluk Gorge.

It’s a seemingly endless landscape of Martian redness, and to be able to enjoy it all from a private Platinum cabin — while taking high tea served to you by a personal butler — is a curious lesson in the persistence and ingenuity of humankind.

Platinum Service

New Platinum Service offers unprecedented levels of comfort for Australian rail travellers.
Wake in the comfort of your own superbly appointed private cabin; draw the blinds to reveal the first sunlight of the day reflecting on the red earth of Central Australia, or dim the cabin lights at night to gaze at a moonlit landscape.

Enjoy spacious private cabins with full ensuite facilities and levels of service that will leave you feeling very special indeed. Settle into your plush lounge by day, and a double bed (or two twin beds) by night. Your cabin is also equipped with coffee table and two ottomans, leaving you room to relax or entertain fellow guests.

The railcar featuring the Desert Explorer lounge is a short stroll away – a welcoming environment designed for socialising, immersing in a good book or watching the scenery as it slides by.

Dine in the elegant Queen Adelaide Restaurant Carriage or take advantage of the 24 hour in-cabin menu, serving a uniquely Australian menu, prepared by the onboard chefs.
