The Ghan & Murray Expedition

Experience Australia's iconic landscapes as you cross the continent from Darwin to Adelaide.

Your expedition begins in Darwin as you board The Ghan for your three night rail journey through the centre of Australia. You travel in Gold Service, with en-suite twin cabins, all meals, and beverages included.
