Named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route, The Ghan will take you from one edge of this continent to the other, through the very centre of Australia.
A journey on The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two jewels of Australia's Northern Territory - the Red Centre and the tropical Top End.
Travelling between the Indian and Pacific oceans for over 40 years, this truly is one of the world's great train journeys.

More than three million guests have already enjoyed this epic journey, which spans a continent, travelling the whole distance in three days and three nights.
