Your onboard Ghan experience

The Taste of the Ghan experience starts before you board. As you sip sparkling wine in the terminal, nibbling on breakfast canapes, you’ll feel the anticipation build. You’re about to sample a train journey that’s been part of Australia’s history.

From the moment you step onboard, you can feel it. This train has led a life; it’s seen things and been part of so many stories.

You take a seat in the lounge carriage, relaxing into the experience. The Ghan sighs as you roll out of Adelaide together. The journey has begun. You peruse the menu ­and quickly realise that deciding between the tempting breakfast dishes will be the hardest thing you have to do today. Our crew will take care of the rest. You’ll be wined, dined and entertained as you travel, alighting at Nantawarra siding for a coach transfer to the first winery of the day.

While you drink and dine, The Ghan patiently waits, ready to welcome you with further delicacies for the return leg.

Your off train Clare Valley experience

Alighting from your coach transfer, you find yourself among the vines of the Clare Valley, one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. Delve into the journey of the humble grape as it makes its way from vine to glass.

Whether at Pauletts, Jeanneret, O’Leary Walker or Pikes Wines, you are guided by the hand of exceptional winemakers as you sip and sample, the sweet scent of grapes in the air. The vines are your backdrop, tumbling into the valley, a carpet of green destined to produce a fine white or deep, delectable red.

Then it’s time to dine. Take a seat at your chosen table – at O’Leary Walker, Slate at Pikes Wines, Bush DeVine at Pauletts or The Watervale Hotel – raise a glass and savour the three-course wining and dining experience that follows. Indulge in the flavours of the valley, prime pastures providing the premium local produce featured in this repast.

Farewelling Clare, you return to The Ghan. The iconic train glides along the tracks but the day is not yet done. The journey homeward serves up more delights before rolling into Adelaide.
