Nostalgia and rail romance
AUSTRALIA’S great train journeys are steeped in the history of the country.
The nostalgia and romance stems from the grand old days of Australian rail travel when steam locomotives hauled the Indian Pacific and The Ghan through Australia’s harsh interior.
Today, Australia’s great train journeys give travellers a unique window to outback Australia.
Aboard The Ghan and the Indian Pacific, guests experience the journey of a lifetime from one side of Australia to another, all in comfort and style.
Dining aboard Australia’s great train journeys is the highlight of the trip with travellers enjoying fine Australian wines as the spectacular scenery passes by the window. This is an experience to remember.
Platinum and Gold service guests dine in the elegantly themed Queen Adelaide Restaurant Car where they enjoy a choice of fine food freshly prepared by the onboard chefs.
The seasonal menu features distinctly Australian mouthwatering dishes such as saltwater barramundi and grilled kangaroo fillet.
The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two jewels of Australia’s Northern Territory, the Red Centre and the tropical Top End.
One of the great train journeys of the world, The Ghan is named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route, from one edge of this continent to the other, through the very centre of Australia.
The Indian Pacific travels an impressive 4352 kilometres between Sydney and Perth.
The journey winds through the stunning Blue Mountains to outback Broken Hill then skirts the Flinders Ranges and Spencer Gulf on its way into Adelaide.
