ANZAC subhead 2013

Next ANZAC Day, embark on an extraordinary Australian journey in honour of our nation’s most significant day of remembrance.
The legendary Ghan will undertake its fourth ANZAC Tribute Journey in 2014, commemorating the sacrifices of Australian servicemen and women.
Departing Darwin on 23 April, The Ghan will venture through the heart of Australia across four unforgettable days, stopping in Alice Springs to observe a traditional Dawn Service atop ANZAC Hill.
The journey features a leisurely river cruise along the stunning Katherine River, an Outback dinner under the stars and a trip on an original Pichi Richi troop train through the spectacular Flinders Ranges.
Bookings are open now for this special event.
The Ghan is a proud supporter of the Returned & Services League of Australia. The 2014 ANZAC Tribute journey raises funds and awareness for the RSL.
