Our trains are icons of Australia. Traversing far and wide, they are the world’s great rail experiences, evoking a frontier spirit, a renowned connection to the land, and travelling on them is a moving life experience.
Our legendary trains, The Ghan, The Indian Pacific, the Overland the Great Southern, offer more than just premium transit. They offer a unique way to explore Australia’s length and breadth, visiting locations no other holiday can match. Showcasing the diverse landscapes, sights, flavours, wildlife, climates and human endeavour that define Australia in the imagination, these transcontinental journeys offer exceptional scale, range and significance.
Based in Adelaide, South Australia, we have owned and operated The Ghan (Adelaide-Alice Springs-Darwin), the Indian Pacific (Sydney-Adelaide-Perth) and The Overland (Melbourne-Adelaide) rail journeys since 1997 when we became the first transcontinental passenger rail business to be privatised in Australia.
Today, we are passionate and always evolving, building on our trains’ remarkable heritage and inspired by the wonder of Australia, we connect travellers to enriching, powerful experiences both on and off our iconic trains.
In 2019, The Ghan marks 90 years of outback crossings – an iconic journey with a celebrated place in Australian History. // One of the world’s great rail journeys, The Ghan has been voyaging between Adelaide and Darwin for 90 years – occupying a special place in the history and imagination of this awe-inspiring country.

With it’s bold wedge-tailed eagle emblem symbolising the scope, range and significance of each epic journey, The Indian Pacific traverses mountain ranges, arid deserts and Goldfields, through rocky valleys and desert savannahs on its transcontinental crossings.
