The Ghan

One of the world’s grandest rail journeys, The Ghan, takes you across the heart of this extraordinary land on an overnight journey from Alice Springs to Darwin. 
For over 90 years the Ghan has crossed the outback. On your journey you’ll enjoy comfortable private Gold Service cabins, fine dining, and friendly service. A regionally Inspired menu paired with a choice of local wines during your train journey all beverages and meals are included. Everything is taken care of so that all you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch the extraordinary, ever-changing landscapes pass by. 
 
The Ghan follows the route taken over 150 years ago by pioneering Afghani cameleers who helped explore and build infrastructure in the outback. Your journey, however, will be in comfort and style so you can relax and watch the spectacular scenery of the outback unfold. The route displays the diverse and captivating terrain. Along the way you'll see the vibrant outback colour palette, the MacDonnell Ranges, and the Top End.
