RIDE THE RAILS ONCE MORE ON THE GHAN 


The mighty Ghan with its iconic red and white locomotive will once again be forging through the heart of Australia taking guests between Adelaide and Darwin. 

Following a temporary hiatus due to COVID-19 and the recent easing of South Australian and Northern Territory border restrictions, The Ghan is set to resume on Sunday 30 August departing from Adelaide. 

Journey Beyond Chief Executive Officer, Chris Tallent, said it was great to see The Ghan bounce back following the global pandemic. 

“The Ghan has been part of Australian rail history for 90 years and has survived a world war, the Great Depression and various pandemics, so it’s great to see it back in action once more,” Mr Tallent said. 

“We understand many Australians have forgone holidays or had to change their plans and we are pleased to be able to start helping them experience their long-awaited travels.” 

“We have introduced JourneySafe, an initiative to enhance guest and crew safety on all Journey Beyond experiences and give guests peace of mind when travelling with us.” 

“We have altered dining arrangements and we’ll be practising physical distancing and doubling-down on our already stringent hygiene practices.” 

“The easing of border restrictions has come just in time to help people from the southern states enjoy a beautifully warm dry season in Darwin.” 

“With international travel still a way off, this is a great opportunity to better explore the beauty of Australia while enjoying our trademark hospitality.” 

The Ghan is a two-night, three-day journey from Adelaide to Darwin or a three-night, four-day journey from Darwin to Adelaide with stops in Alice Springs, Katherine and Coober Pedy*. 

The Ghan is all-inclusive of premium food and wine, Off Train Experiences and attentive crew willing to go the extra mile. 

“To help guests celebrate the relaunch of this iconic journey , we’ve released exclusive online offers including the two-night Ghan from $1899 and the three-night Ghan Expedition from $2649 per person.” 

To book your extraordinary Australian rail holiday on The Ghan visit www.theghan.com or phone 13 21 47. 

The Ghan’s sister train, the Indian Pacific, will resume its travels between Perth and Sydney later in 2020 pending updates on border restrictions. 

*Stops in Coober Pedy only on four-day Ghan Expedition itinerary from Darwin to Adelaide.
