The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - NEWS -

On travel wish lists two evoca­tive words rou­tinely ap­pear: The Ghan. The world fa­mous rail jour­ney re­quires no fur­ther ex­pla­na­tion, the two words in­stantly in­duce yearn­ings of travers­ing the re­mote heart of Aus­tralia, glid­ing through deserts and an­cient Out­back land­scapes from ex­otic trop­i­cal Dar­win to el­e­gant, Mediter­ranean-style Ade­laide. So The Ghan could eas­ily rest on its iconic lau­rels, sat­is­fied with its bucket list-top­ping rat­ing. But no, The Ghan Ex­pe­di­tion has upped the ante by of­fer­ing a game-chang­ing, ex­tended three night, four day jour­ney. Now the Ghan Ex­pe­di­tion, travelling mostly at night, al­lows pas­sen­gers three full days off-train to com­pletely ab­sorb the land­scape, char­ac­ters and ad­ven­ture of Aus­tralia’s deep heart. This is a truly immersive jour­ney. For­get set­tling in for hours of win­dow gaz­ing reverie, The Ghan Ex­pe­di­tion will have you brush­ing red dirt from your shoes and cruis­ing the soul-calm­ing wa­ters of the Kather­ine River gaz­ing at spec­tac­u­lar gorges and gap­ing at in­cred­i­ble Abo­rig­i­nal rock art. You will become en­veloped in the Out­back, re­turn­ing to the train with a sou­venir waft of camp­fire smoke on your clothes and deeply etched mem­o­ries in your heart.

A once in a life­time jour­ney through the heart of Aus­tralia, be sure not to miss out, space is strictly limited.
