Regarded as one of the world's greatest rail journeys and a true national treasure, The Ghan has captivated travellers since its inaugural journey in 1929. The Ghan continues to be a top choice for those seeking an authentic Australian adventure with added comfort and luxury. Choose to stay on Platinum or Gold Service; each cabin features en suite facilities and doubles as a private lounge in the day before being turned down at night. If you want some extra space, the Chairman's Carriage and the Sir John Forrest Carriage are both available to charter. Both Platinum and Gold have access to Queen Adelaide Restaurant for lunch and dinner complemented by a selection of beer, wine and soft drinks. When staying in Platinum or Gold Service, there are a number of excursions for you to enjoy along the way: explore the outback town of Alice Springs, visit the historic Telegraph Station or enjoy a sunrise balloon ride over the rugged landscape.
