Day 2

The Ghan – Departing Adelaide
Step aboard the legendary Ghan, taking time to acquaint yourself with the friendly staff and your cabin. 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. Watch the rolling pastoral lands of South Australia merge into rugged mallee scrub and marvel as the spectacular Flinders Ranges disappear into the horizon. This evening, join back together for dinner, and as darkness falls outside the train’s windows, talk inevitably turns to the impressive outback gourmet menu.

The Ghan – In Alice Springs
Witness an unforgettable outback sunrise at our stop in Marla in the remote reaches of South Australia. Back on board, it’s time for brunch. Enjoy a light bite or order something a little
more substantial. After travelling through more incredible outback scenery, arrive in the iconic Alice Springs. Here you can enjoy one of the included Off Train Excursions or choose one of
the optional tours for an additional cost. Visit local landmarks, or take a front row seat at a spectacular bird show at the Desert Park. To fully appreciate this breathtaking part of Australia, you might like to take a helicopter ride over the ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Alternatively, experience a serene camel ride across incredible ochre land or continue further into the interior of Australia and visit the iconic Uluru and Kata Juta. (Please note: Excursions cannot be booked until on board the train. A full list of optional tours available will be provided.) Later today, there’s time to talk through the day’s discoveries with newfound friends before freshening up for dinner.
