The Ghan
Adelaide to Darwin

The Ghan

aa

Experience one of the world's greatest train journeys aboard The Legendary Ghan. The legend has soared to new heights with the extension of The Ghan journey to Darwin. When The Ghan first departed Adelaide for Alice Springs, it was always intended that it would one day travel through to Darwin. More than 70 years later, that dream has become reality.

The Ghan now travels 2,979 kilometers from Adelaide to Darwin on this transcontinental journey through the Red Centre of Australia. The Ghan offers a weekly return journey between Adelaide and Darwin, and in either direction provides two nights aboard this legendary train. Marvel at the spectacular Australian landscapes; from the rusty reds of the MacDonnell Ranges surrounding Alice Springs, gateway to Ayers Rock and the Red Centre, then north to Tennant Creek, Katherine and the tropical splendor of Darwin. Off-train touring is a feature of the new journey, providing the chance to learn more about the unique desert flora and fauna.
