Taking the Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin is one life's great experiences. The staff were fantastic and the dining was second to none, the chefs do an unbelievable job to serve so many top class meals in a moving environment.
This is one of those short breaks that isn't for those looking for a budget holiday, but is for those that want a taste of the better things in life.

The train ride was comfortable and enjoyable for most of the journey except for a few kms just after Alice Springs where the ride became a little rough! The staff were excellent, very efficient, polite and informative. The rooms were adequate for the amount of space there was. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we would definitely recommend it to friends. Thank you

An excellent travelling experience. Loved the breakfast at dawn in the desert and the side trips in Alice springs and Katherine. Thank you for the buggies to assist my 90 year old mother to get to and from buses and the train with ease. The food was amazing and just the right amounts. The open bar was a treat and the bar snacks yummy. Our room was cosy.

Just loved our recent trip on the Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin. The food was excellent, great choices on a lovely menu for all of the meals. The Gold class twin cabin was comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was very functional, easy to use with a really good shower. The Ghan staff were just outstanding, very professional, warm and welcoming. And the view of the changing scenery was bewitching.
