Rail to the Red Centre

Great Southern Rail has launched an exciting new four-day, three-night journey on its iconic Ghan train as part of its 2015/16 schedule of epic Australian rail holidays. The four-day Ghan adds an extra day and night to the standard Ghan journey from Darwin to Adelaide, taking guests through the heart of the Australian Outback on a 76-hour adventure that includes Katherine, more time in Alice Springs and a new excursion at Coober Pedy. The extended service is available as a full Darwin-Adelaide journey during the 2015 peak season between 23 May and 22 August. The four-day, three-night Ghan includes day and night off train excursions in Alice Springs, including a dinner under the stars at the magnificent MacDonnell Ranges; the option to undertake a fly-in visit of Uluru (at extra cost), getting back in time to rejoin The Ghan; and a full day to explore underground at Coober Pedy, the opal mining capital of the world.

The 2015/16 schedule also introduces a new range of all-inclusive highlights for the year-round Indian Pacific and The Ghan, including unforgettable outback sunrise and sunset short stops on both the year-round Indian Pacific (Nullarbor Plain) and year-round Ghan (remote South Australia); more time to explore South Australia on the Sydney-Perth Indian Pacific journey with the option to undertake an exclusive tour of the world-renowned Barossa Valley; and an off-board dining experience in Adelaide for guests on the Sydney-Perth Indian Pacific journey.
