The Ghan – Fares 2020 / 2021

When it comes to the great rail journeys of Australia, there’s nothing quite like The Ghan. Going far beyond the means of regular rail travel, you simply won’t be disappointed as you sit back, relax and embrace the true Australia from the comfort of your beautiful cabin.

The Ghan sweeps down the centre of Australia starting in either Darwin or Adelaide and crossing through Katherine and Alice springs. This  journey allows you to see the red centre, the core of Australia, and opens up the gateway to the beautiful and iconic Uluru.
