Great Southern Rail

Great Southern Rail offers journeys beyond into the wide expanse of the Australian Outback with The Ghan and Indian Pacific. Experience the very best Australia has to offer in a level of comfort only rail travel can provide. Whether you choose to travel from the tropical reaches of Darwin to the wine capital of Adelaide, or from shores of the Indian Ocean to the Pacific coast, your time aboard one of the world’s great rail journeys will deliver a truly iconic Australian holiday beyond expectations. Guests on The Ghan and Indian Pacific can enjoy a range of Outback Experiences that are included in all Platinum and Gold Service fares. New Outback Experiences allow guests to leave the train to connect with remote Outback destinations during the magnificent hours of sunrise and sunset. Off Train Excursions and Outback Experiences offer extended stops whereby guests are invited to undertake a selection of organised tours as part of their rail holiday.

 

THERE ARE VERY FEW GLOBAL JOURNEYS CONSIDERED NATIONAL TREASURES BUT THE GHAN AND INDIAN PACIFIC ARE, WITHOUT QUESTION, ICONIC AUSTRALIAN EXPERIENCES.

 

From the moment you step aboard these legendary trains, you can feel it – a spirit of adventure and a sense of something very special about to unfold. Traversing the full length and breadth of the world’s largest island by rail captures the rich tapestry of landscapes, colours, flavours, climates, wildlife and human endeavour that together define the Great Southern Land. These are adventures without peer. And they bring people together. One of the unexpected rewards of joining these coveted rail journeys is the wonderful camaraderie created among those who share the excitement of the trip of a lifetime. It is a moving, emotional and unforgettable experience to ride the rails of history.
