There are very few global journeys considered national treasures but our trains are, without question, iconic Australian experiences. From the moment you step aboard these legendary trains, you can feel it – a spirit of adventure and a sense of something very special about to unfold. Traversing the full length and breadth of the world’s largest island by rail captures the rich tapestry of this land, and we take you there in unparalleled style.
Venture further with curated, powerfully enriching holiday packages that capture the nation in all its guises. Journey Beyond Rail Journeys offer much more than just seamless transit, choose from a huge range of expertly-crafted, all-inclusive experiences to create your own rich and rewarding personal journey, and fully immerse yourself in the unique environments our trains travel through.
There is no place in the world like Australia, and the romance of rail offers a unique way to explore its length and breadth. From the bright lights of a modern metropolis to the stirring silence of the vast outback, we know this land, and showcase the diverse landscapes, sights, flavours, wildlife, climates and human endeavour that define Australia in the imagination.
The Ghan due to depart from Darwin on Wednesday 26 February has been delayed due to flash flooding south of Katherine.
