Overview

The Ghan northbound itinerary takes you from the coast in South Australia through the fiery red centre to Darwin in the tropical north. This coast to coast train journey on the Ghan is an unforgettable adventure with immersive off train experiences and all-inclusive meals and beverages along the way. The Outback Spirit journey is not only an iconic rail experience but you’ll learn about the Indigenous people and their culture as you journey to places unlike any that you’ll have seen before. Cruise along the Nitmiluk George, learn about Katherine’s ancient Indigenous rock paintings or discover life on an authentic outback cattle station. Back onboard the train relax in the comfort of your private cabin, or mingle with your fellow travellers in the lounge car as you take in the spectacular scenery that changes from morning to evening as the train glides through the heart of Australia’s immense landscape.

Day 1

Adelaide

On departing from Adelaide settle into your cabin and watch the rolling pastoral lands of South Australia from your window or head to the lounge car and meet your fellow travellers. Ahead lies the rugged, beautiful and spectacular landscape of the Red Centre and before long you will see some of the oldest rock formations in the world, the Flinders Ranges, come into view. As the sun starts to set it’s time to indulge in a regionally-inspired dinner paired with fines wines and beverages.

Overnight – Indian Pacific Train (Dinner included)

Day 2

Alice Springs

This morning begin with a freshly brewed coffee or juice as the train rolls into Marla, an outback outpost in the remote South Australia country. As the sunrises you’ll enjoy a one of a kind experience as the desert comes to life. Bruch will be served as you make your way through the MacDonnell Ranges to Alice Springs which is where an off train experience awaits. 1,500 kilometres from the nearest major city, Alice is an iconic Red Centre outpost but even with its remote location there is still plenty on offer to explore.
