The Ghan Expedition - Darwin to Adelaide Itinerary

Day 1: Darwin - Katherine 

Your journey like no other begins with a leisurely, mid-morning departure from Darwin. Once you’re comfortably settled into your cabin, we make our way through the lush, green, tropical north and you make your way to the restaurant for a five-star lunch accompanied by a selection of fine wines.

An early afternoon arrival at the famous Top End township of Katherine and you have a choice of an afternoon filled with Off Train Excursions that take in the natural beauty of the Gorge, as well as its cultural and historic significance for Indigenous and early settlers. Back on board in the early evening and there is plenty of opportunity to share your experiences with fellow guests before, during and after a sumptuous dinner. Enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep

Day 2: Alice Springs 

A beautiful breakfast prepares you for a full day of Off Train Excursions that include lunch in Alice Springs. You’ll return to the train for a quick freshen up, before dining under a million stars of the outback. Returning to the train, the Lounges are open until late so travellers can share their journey highlights so far, or quietly relax before retiring.

Day 3: Manguri

Breakfast is served as we arrive into Manguri where we disembark and travel by air-conditioned coach to enjoy a full day of touring in and around the truly unique, underground opal mining township of Coober Pedy. Dinner is served back on the train where you can enjoy a nightcap as we journey through the night.

Day 4: Adelaide

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast as we prepare for our mid-morning arrival into Adelaide.

Here you have the choice of spending the day exploring the city of churches, or extending your stay with a visit to the Barossa Valley or Kangaroo Island.
