Australia is home to two of the most iconic trains in the world—The Ghan and Indian Pacific.

Both trains are renowned for elegant accommodation, fine dining, top-notch service and unique itineraries. So how do you choose between them? It all comes down to which remarkable route you want to experience first.

THE GHAN

Immerse yourself in the red centre of Australia from Adelaide to Darwin, with off-train experiences in Marla, Alice Springs and Katherine.

THE GHAN EXPEDITION

Book a spectacular outback crossing between Darwin and Adelaide, with time to explore Katherine, Alice Springs and Coober Pedy.

INDIAN PACIFIC

Cross Australia from coast to coast between Perth, Adelaide and Sydney. Marvel at The Blue Mountains, Broken Hill and unspoilt sights along the way.

GREAT SOUTHERN RAIL

Explore the east coast of Australia between Brisbane and Adelaide in December and January. Highlights include Coffs Harbour, The Hunter Valley and The Grampians.

STAY A LITTLE LONGER. IT’S MAGICAL OUT THERE.

Your holiday doesn’t have to end when you roll into the last station. We’ve curated a handful of high-end luxury escapes to keep the magic alive, well after the train engine has cooled.

Hideaway on a private island oasis, get close to nature at a remote wilderness lodge or indulge yourself at a 5-star winery estate.
