More in­for­ma­tion

The 2018 Ghan Ex­pe­di­tion sea­son runs from April to Oc­to­ber. Dur­ing the high sea­son (May to Septem­ber 2018), fares are NZ$3994 per per­son for a gold ser­vice sin­gle cabin, NZ$4213pp for a gold ser­vice twin cabin, and NZ$6583pp for a plat­inum ser­vice cabin. Dur­ing the shoul­der sea­son (April 2018, Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 2018, March 2019) fares are NZ$3730pp for a gold ser­vice sin­gle cabin, NZ$3950pp for a gold ser­vice twin cabin, and NZ$6254pp for a plat­inum ser­vice cabin. All food, drink and most of the off-train ex­cur­sions are in­cluded in the fare. Ad­vance pur­chase dis­counts are avail­able for book­ings made at least six months prior. The Ghan op­er­ates all year round, as a three-day/two-night train leav­ing Ade­laide on Sun­days and Dar­win on Wed­nes­days. Dur­ing the Ghan Ex­pe­di­tion sea­son, the south­bound jour­ney be­comes four-days/three­nights. The train leaves Dar­win on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, so it is best to ar­rive the night be­fore.
