Australian Holidays have recently been flooded with enquiries about the legendary Ghan Train. This recent interest has been fuelled by the inclusion of two sections of the train’s journeys; Adelaide to Alice Springs and the Alice Springs to Darwin on the Qantas World Discovery Plus Round World Ticket.
This Round World Ticket offers excellent value for money with prices starting at €1439 excluding airport taxes. The fare allows a maximum of seven stopovers with a vast range of stopover options including cities within South Africa, South America, Asia, the Pacific and the USA, passengers can utilise one of their free stopovers within Australia to travel by train on one of the Ghan’s two spectacular journeys.
The Ghan is classified as one of the world’s great trains and operates through the centre of Australia’s breathtaking desert regions. The journey from Adelaide to Alice Springs departs on Fridays and Sundays; the journey from Alice Spring to Darwin departs on Tuesdays and Sundays.
It’s an odd name for a train, but in Australian history it is a living legend.
Boarding The Ghan in Adelaide or Darwin, with great connections on the Indian Pacific and The Overland for guests travelling to or from Sydney and Melbourne, you’ll experience one of the most fascinating great train journeys of the world. Marvel at the spectacular Australian landscapes; from the rusty reds of the MacDonnell Ranges surrounding Alice Springs, gateway to Ayers Rock and the Red Centre, to Tennant Creek, Katherine and the tropical splendour of Darwin.
