The Ghan Expedition Rail Journey

An incredible, one-of-a-kind experience through Australia’s Outback
DEAL ID: AEEJFZ

Thunder through ever-changing landscapes encased in the elegance, style and luxury of the Ghan train, during a journey to remember from Darwin to Adelaide.

Your holiday begins in Darwin where you’ll have two nights to explore the capital of Australia’s Northern territory. Daredevils can get up close and personal with a croc at Corocosaurus Cove, or for those who’d prefer to keep their feet on dry land, there’s plenty of museums and galleries where you can learn about Aboriginal culture, or waterfront restaurants and bars to sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere in.  

Following your stay you’ll board the legendary Ghan train for your journey of discovery to Adelaide. Wind through the MacDonnell Ranges’ rusty red hues and the charms of the South Australian plains, as you tuck into gourmet meals prepared by professional chefs, using locally sourced ingredients so you can enjoy a true taste of the outback. You’ll enjoy included off-train excursions during your journey letting you fully discover destinations such as Katherine, Alice Springs and middle-of-nowhere Manguri as you uncover ancient cultural stories and view stunning landscapes as you trail through Australia in style. As dry and dusty outback makes way for golden hills, you’ll know you’ve arrived in Adelaide where you’ll disembark for a two night hotel stay. Sophisticated and multicultural, Adelaide is infused by a curious blend of influences that flavours its restaurants, arts scene, live music calendar and bars.
