Description

A transcontinental rail adventure offering unsurpassed views of Australia

Itinerary

Travellers are blessed with choice as Australia offers the well-seasoned globetrotter some of the most spectacular rail experiences in the world: Journeys aboard legendary trains such as “The Ghan”, “Indian Pacific”, “The Overland” or “The Southern Spirit” are the pinnacle of every trip around the great Southern land!

An Australian rail journey allows you to explore the continent from coast to coast, from major cities to the vast expanse of the Outback and everywhere in between – Welcome aboard!

The Ghan

The Journey – An overview

This transcontinental adventure offers an unsurpassed view of Australia – From North to South and over three unforgettable days.

Travel by rail between Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin and you will be embarking on one of the great rail journeys of the world. Named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route when the first explorers started opening up inland Australia, The Ghan will take you from the far South coast to the tropical North, through the very heart of the continent.

A journey on The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two big jewels of Australia's Northern Territory – the “Red Centre” and the tropical “Top End”. No journey aboard The Ghan is complete without taking in both of these must-see destinations.

The Ghan's timetable makes the most of the daylight hours to offer travellers unsurpassed views of the passing landscapes. From the sweeping Adelaide Plains unfolding before your eyes to the majestic and ancient Flinders Ranges, this first stage of the journey offers a perspective on South Australia you simply can not afford to miss.

Each new day begins with a fresh panorama of ever changing landscapes. Red earth and cobalt blue skies – the true essence of Central Australia takes on a character of its own with every passing hour.

Leave the train in Alice Springs to tour locations close to Australia’s heart with Whistle Stop and Optional Tours. These tours, which last from a few hours to a few days, include an extraordinary range of opportunities for discovering the region’s most fascinating sites [Whistle Stop tours are to be booked onboard the train].

Entering the Top End, the landscape mellows with subtropical flora staking its claim over the passing scenery. Whistle Stop Tours in the northern town of Katherine offer guests the opportunity to experience the inspiring wonders of Nitmiluk [Katherine Gorge] before your transcontinental train expedition concludes in tropical Darwin, the relaxed capital city of the Northern Territory.

The story behind The Ghan

The inspiration for The Ghan stems from the pioneering Afghan cameleers who, over 150 years ago, blazed a permanent iron trail into the Red Centre of Australia. Its original name however was Afghan Express. The Ghan’s emblem is – very fittingly and in recognition of the incredible contribution these hard working men made – an Afghan on a camel. Only with their efforts was it possible to open up the inhospitable, vast and hostile interior of the continent. The original, now defunct Ghan train line followed the route of famous explorer John MacDouall Stuart. The Old Ghan railway ran on light, narrow gauge track well to the east of today’s tracks.

On Sunday 4 August 1929, an exuberant and thrilled crowd gathered at the Adelaide Railway Station to see Australian rail history unfold; hundreds of good citizens of Adelaide came to farewell the first ever Ghan train! This very train carried lots of supplies, goods and over 100 passengers bound for the remote town of Stuart which later on was to become Alice Springs. Two days later and after an arduous, but successful journey, the train master’s whistle pierced the silence of the McDonnell Ranges that surround Alice Springs.

For 35 years, the train was steam hauled, and the service had to contend with extreme weather conditions that could include devastating flash floods, freezing cold and intense summer heat. As well as fire and flood damage, it was regularly savaged by termites. Flash flooding, when the normally parched river beds in the middle of the desert spilled out onto the low lying desert plains, frequently washed away entire sections of the track. Not surprisingly, climatic conditions were often to be blamed for rather frequent service disruptions.

On 26 June 1954, conveniently timed to coincide with a visit of the then Prime Minister, Mr Menzies, the first diesel-driven Ghan service pulled into Alice Springs. The dieselisation of the Central Australian Railway led to an almost immediate reduction of 60% of operating costs over steam – the steam era of The Ghan had well and truly come to an end!

In 1980, The Old Ghan rail track was abandoned and instead, a new standard gauge rail line was built. Termite proof concrete sleepers replaced the wooden sleepers on the old track, and the new route was also laid in less flood-prone areas of the South Australian and Northern Territory deserts.

When The Ghan first departed Adelaide in 1929, it had already been intended that one day, the service to Alice Springs would be extended all the way through to Darwin on the shores of the Timor Sea. With its final completion achieved in 2004, the overland rail-link between Adelaide and Darwin became a reality. From 1 to 3 February 2004, The Ghan made its inaugural North-South transcontinental journey. The epic, almost 3,000 km journey traverses some of the most
spectacular and diverse landscapes the country has to show off: From endless horizons in the South Australian Outback to the rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges surrounding Alice Springs to the dense tropical vegetation in and around Katherine and the tropical splendour of Darwin – The Ghan covers it all and makes this one of the greatest rail experiences in the world!
