Discover the extraordinary - The Ghan, Indian Pacific & The Overland

Magical rail journeys, holiday packages & optional tours & accommodation

To be spirited across an ancient landscape aboard one of the world’s most iconic trains is an adventure in itself. But it’s what you’ll discover along the way that makes it a journey beyond anything you’ve experienced before.

Wake up to see the sun rising over Australia’s Red Centre; watch the majestic Blue Mountains slide past; relax while the fabled outback unfolds; view golden farmlands shimmering in the afternoon light.

Rail Journeys

The Ghan - Darwin to Adelaide or vice versa

Travel deep into the heart of Australia on one of the world’s great rail journeys. Travelling 2,979km, this two night / three day journey travels coast to coast via Alice Springs and Katherine. Included is a series of immersive off train excursions; river cruises, cultural experiences and optional camel rides or helicopter flights add another exciting dimension to your journey, giving you a chance to breathe in the beauty you’ve been watching pass by.

The Ghan Expedition - Darwin to Adelaide

A more immersive journey which allows travellers to intimately experience the very best the heart of our nation has to offer, the four-day Ghan Expedition truly is a journey beyond. In addition to exploring Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge, there is a full day of touring in Alice Springs that concludes with dinner under the stares, plus another full day of exploring the underground mining town of Coober Pedy.

Indian Pacific - Sydney to Perth via Adelaide or vice versa

This four day / three night journey links the coasts of the Indian Ocean with the Pacific Ocean in an absolutely remarkable 4,325km journey. Witness the vast Australian landscape unfold before your eyes as you journey through the majestic Blue Mountains, the picturesque Flinders Ranges and the harsh, lonely desert that is the Nullarbor Plain. You will experience the world’s longest straight stretch of railway track as you majestically travel on a transcontinental journey like no other.

The Overland - Adelaide to Melbourne or vice versa

The Overland runs a daylight service between Adelaide and Melbourne in both directions, passing through classic country towns including Murray Bridge, Bordertown, Dimboola, Horsham, Ararat and Geelong. You will soak up a diverse range of landscapes from rugged mallee scrubland, to fields of golden crops, over vast open plains and through gently rolling hills.
