It doesn’t come any better than travelling on The Ghan, exploring Uluru and Kata Tjuta, cruising Katherine Gorge and touring Kakadu, all in one sensational journey through the nation’s heartland. The iconic Ghan, one of Australia’s most famous train journeys has a rich and colourful history. A grand vision to link the country from South to North by rail began in the 1870s, not long after John McDowell Sturt completed his epic trek along the route.

Finally completed in 2004, the world’s newest trans-continental line has been taking freight and pax to our southern and northern regions. Our tour will take you to some of the most iconic places in our country, including the magnificent Uluru, one of the wonders of the natural world, and awe-inspiring Kakadu. If you have always wanted to immerse yourself in the heart of the Australian outback and its iconic landmarks, then this is the trip for you.
