The Ghan is a legendary train journey between Darwin and Adelaide that crosses through Australia’s Red Centre. Here’s everything you need to know about The Ghan to make the most of your trip.
The Ghan is a moving and unforgettable train travel experience that evokes a romantic connection to our great southern land.
"On a journey like The Ghan, it’s easy to be seduced by the incredible landscapes of the Australian outback as you travel between Adelaide and Darwin," says David Donald, Executive General Manager, Rail, at Journey Beyond.
"It’s not just about watching the scenery as you pass through, though. There are also opportunities to immerse yourself in those landscapes on the all-inclusive Off Train Experiences, whether it’s a cruise along Nitmiluk Gorge, a cultural walk at Standley Chasm, lunch underground in an opal mine in Coober Pedy, or dinner under the stars at the old Telegraph Station in Alice Springs."
It’s also a great way to travel responsibly, by supporting Australian communities, learning from Indigenous guides, and reducing your reliance on car and airplane travel.
