Journey Beyond with Australia’s Great Train Journeys
Welcome to Rail Australia – the international brand for Great Southern Rail. Great Southern Rail has owned and operated The Ghan and Indian Pacific since 1997 when it became the first transcontinental rail business to be privatised in Australia.
There are few experiences quite like a rail journey throughout the vast and rugged continent of Australia.
Imagine looking out your window as kangaroos hop across the vast Red Centre or as the morning light breaks over the peaks of the majestic Blue Mountains.
More than simply a mode of transport, The Ghan and Indian Pacific are unforgettable holiday experiences that allow you to explore some of Australia’s most beautiful and intriguing destinations. While other travellers rush from point-to-point at 35,000 feet above the ground, these journeys offer an intimate perspective of the incredible scope of the country you are crossing.
While the interior of the continent stretches before you, you are invited to share the spirit of expedition with your fellow travellers over a glass of wine, regional cuisine and time spent in amazing stops along the route.
Whether you seek adventure or relaxation as an independent traveller, as a couple or as part of a group, The Ghan and Indian Pacific are just the ticket for a journey beyond the ordinary.
