Heart of Australia
Synonymous with outback Australia, The Ghan is an engineering marvel which travels through the heart of Australia's red centre from Adelaide in the south all the way to the Top End city of Darwin in the far north. Encompassing a 2,979-kilometre stretch of unyielding rail, to journey on The Ghan is to journey through the very heart and soul of Australia's mysterious interior.
Named after the Afghan camel drivers who first traversed the dusty interior, what was once known as The Afghan Express connects Alice Springs in Australia's arid centre with the north and south of the country. Passengers on The Ghan enjoy panoramic views of some of Australia's most dramatic landscapes as the train sweeps from coastal plains through desolate deserts to the lush tropical north.
