Prepare for a holiday of unimaginable proportions as the legendary Ghan takes you deep into the heart of Australia. Enjoy the comfort and solitude of your private cabin, lose yourself in conversation with newfound travelling companions, or simply gaze out of the window taking inspiration from the ever changing landscape. Regarded as one of the world’s greatest rail journeys, The Ghan delivers so much more than an extended train ride. It promises access to parts of Australia no other holiday can come close to – the perfect balance of comfort and adventure culminating in an experience that will move you in every sense of the word.
Through the big screen window of your cosy, well-appointed cabin, you’ll watch tremendous secrets unfold as the train transports you from one end of the continent to the other. Spend hours deep in conversation with a travelling partner or lose yourself in a lifetime of thoughts. And after a day of off-train activities, your cabin provides the perfect place to relax and recharge before heading for the lounge or dining carriage. You’ll enjoy private cabin accommodation together with all-inclusive dining, beverages and a range of fascinating Off Train Excursions at key stops. Gold Service accommodation is available in both single and twin-share so you can choose to travel with your partner, friends or roll solo.
Platinum Service offers guests the most luxurious transcontinental holiday Australia has to offer. Boasting deluxe extras such as Platinum Transfers, in-cabin breakfasts and access to the Platinum Club, Platinum Service promises and delivers a journey beyond expectations. The first thing you’ll notice about your Platinum cabin is the abundance of space, almost twice the size of a Gold Twin Cabin. By day your cabin is configured as a private lounge with deluxe lounge seating, a table and two ottomans. By night you’ll sleep easy as the lounges convert to a comfortable bedroom with either a double bed or twin beds.
Upon entering the Queen Adelaide Restaurant, you'll be struck by its ornate styling reminiscent of old-world rail travel. However, the classic décor is just one element to this most intriguing of dining spaces. Dynamic menus showcase the finest regional flavours available - from Top End barramundi, locally-produced beef and lamb, Margaret River cheeses, Barossa Valley small goods and native Australian fare including kangaroo, saltbush and wild rosella flower. All meals are complemented by a range of all-inclusive wines, beers and non-alcoholic beverages.
Off Train Excursions are specially designed to fit in with the train timetable so you’ll have the opportunity to take in some of the area’s best sights and better yet, they are included as part of your journey aboard the Indian Pacific.
