DAY 1. THE GHAN, ADELAIDE

DAY 2. THE GHAN, ALICE SPRINGS

After your first night enjoying the fine dining and relaxed comfort of this iconic train, you’ll wake to an amazing outback sunrise at Marla – a remote outpost 160 kilometres from the Northern Territory border that marks the start of the Oodnadatta Track. Enjoy more otherworldly outback scenery before arriving into Alice Springs early in the afternoon to enjoy an Off Train Experience that delves deeper into this historic outback town.
