Australia’s Outback has always invoked a sense of romance. It conjures images of red dirt, ancient cultures, breathtaking landscapes and a harshness that both intrigues and commands respect at the same time.
It tells stories of explorers who have gone before us, pioneering the way across the interior of Australia that now, we as guests onboard The Ghan, can enjoy in luxury while making memories that last a lifetime.
Traversing the 2,979 kilometres from Adelaide to Darwin over two nights and three days, The Ghan follows the route forged by Afghan cameleers in the late 19th century. But far from the scorching temperatures and slow pace endured by the Afghans, guests travel through the Outback on The Ghan in air-conditioned comfort at a leisurely pace of 80 – 115 kilometres an hour.
While on board, Scenic guests enjoy the old-world charm of Gold Service, featuring twin cabins with ensuites and single cabins with shared facilities.
Guests can also choose to upgrade to Platinum Service, which comprises twin or double cabins that are more spacious with a modern and sleek finish.
Whether you travel in Gold or Platinum, you will receive second-to-none service and share the journey with staff who love what they do and delight in sharing the adventure with you.
From helping you choose your Off Train Excursions, seating you with fellow-guests at meal times and the evening turn-down service, nothing is too much trouble.
