The Ghan - Adelaide to Darwin Itinerary

Day 1 – Departing Adelaide

Your journey begins with a gentle lurch as you move away from the platform in Adelaide. What lies ahead is rugged, beautiful and spectacular; through the Red Centre to the tropical north of Australia. Lunch is served soon after boarding as the countryside glides past your window. Before long some of the oldest rock formations in the world, the spectacular Flinders Ranges come into view and as darkness envelopes the rugged outback, it’s time to indulge in more modern Australian cuisine and fine wines.

Day 2: Marla, MacDonnell Ranges & Alice Springs

After a comfortable night’s rest, day two begins with a freshly brewed coffee or juice as you take in the stunning outback sunrise at Marla. All aboard for brunch as you make your way through the MacDonnell Ranges to Alice Springs where a choice of remarkable Off Train Excursions awaits. Following an afternoon of exploration, freshen up for dinner back aboard the train and relax over a drink or two, sharing your experiences, swapping stories and making new friends.

Day 3: Katherine & Darwin

Your final day dawns in the tropical north and another delightful breakfast is served. More extraordinary excursions are on hand at Katherine before enjoying lunch on the train and heading for your final destination of Darwin; arriving as early evening falls.
