Unforgettable Outback Plus Iconic Train

Travel from Darwin to Kakadu National Park and onward to the Red Centre with the iconic Ghan for an adventure of a lifetime. 

 

On this epic rail journey, The Ghan cuts through ‘the spine’ of Australia - discover ancient Aboriginal rock art that dates back to more than 50,000 years and cruise Kakadu’s East Alligator River in search for the mighty salt crocodile and to spot other prolific wildlife.

 

Leaving the tropics of the Top End, the luxurious train continues south to the arid desert of Central Australia.  Experience the outback starting in the pioneering heart of Australia, Alice Springs – a small town with a rich history.  Our last stop is one that will stay with you forever.  One of the great natural wonders of the world, Uluru is not only a spectacular natural formation, but it’s a deeply spiritual place. You can feel a powerful presence the moment you first set eyes on it.
