Fly to Adelaide

Your luxurious Aussie adventure begins today with your flight to Adelaide, where you will be met your driver for your private transfer to your hotel.

Day 2

The Ghan (boarding in Adelaide)

Enjoy a private transfer from your hotel to the train station. Get ready to experience all the comforts of your Gold Class cabin today as you board the spectacular Ghan. Once you’ve settled in and the big wheels start turning, make your way to the classically styled Queen Adelaide Restaurant carriage for a delicious lunch, accompanied by your choice of fine wines. The afternoon is yours to relax, socialise and get acquainted with the novelty of rail travel. After a sumptuous dinner, join other guests for a few late-night drinks or head to your cabin to settle in early and await the sights of your first incredible outback sunrise the next day.

Off-board, spend the afternoon at leisure; you could visit local landmarks, take a front-row seat a spectacular bird show at the Desert Park or experience a majestic camel ride across ochre land. Back on the train, get to know your fellow passengers in the Outback Explorer Lounge before freshening up for dinner - topped off with a cheeky nightcap, of course!
