One of Australia's most talked-about "bucket list" excursions is a trip on the Ghan. Regarded as one of the world's greatest rail journeys, this transcontinental trip provides an unrivalled panorama of Australia.

Return to a time when train travel was a refined and elegant mode of transportation. It's a must-do journey and one of the most comfortable ways to travel through the Australian Outback.

The renowned Ghan transports you deep into the continent's heart. It's the ideal blend of comfort and adventure, creating a trip that will go above and beyond your expectations. Take a private cabin and relax in the luxury and solitude, engage in discussion with newfound travelling friends, or simply gaze out the window at the ever-changing scenery for inspiration.

You’ll observe noticeable differences in the scenery as you leave Darwin in Australia's tropical north. As you journey deeper into the heart of this sunburned country, you'll pass through pockets of lush jungle, statuesque granite outcrops, and miles of vast open expanses.

When the train comes to a stop, the adventure begins! Katherine is a must-see for anyone interested in Aboriginal culture. Nitmiluk, or Katherine Gorge as it is more widely known, is rich in history and exhibits the gorge's stunning grandeur.

Be surprised by Alice Springs, explore Central Australia's arid terrain, discover the Northern Territory's ancient treasures, and ride a camel at dusk. The breath-taking MacDonnell Ranges will leave you speechless and if you have time, visit the Desert Wildlife Park or the Kangaroo Sanctuary for a true Aussie desert adventure.

As it approaches the cosmopolitan metropolis of Adelaide on the Southern Ocean, the world through the Ghan window experiences a remarkable transformation from the Top End tropics to the scorched desert region of Central Australia to the majestic Flinders Ranges and the Adelaide Plains.

When they say there's nothing to see in the outback, don't believe them! It's opulent, it's historically significant, it's a cross-country journey. Three days on the Ghan from Darwin and Adelaide will leave you with memories that last a lifetime.
