Interstate Railway Journeys

Adealide – Alice Springs – Katherine – Darwin: The Ghan

Whereas the Indian Pacific travels from east to west, The Ghan travels north to south, providing a rail link between Darwin and Adelaide via Alice Springs. The Ghan is a great way to see Australia’s Red centre – you get a real feel for the scale of the Australian outback, which you simply don’t on an aeroplane. The journey is ideally split into two 24-hour sectors with a stop-over in Alice Springs.

    • Sydney – Albury – Melbourne: XPT

      Years ago, this train had a fancy name (The Southern Aurora), but though its name is somewhat mundane these days, the journey itself is still as interesting as ever. the train does two runs each day in both directions – one overnight, the other is a day trip. The overnight trip saves the cost of a night’s accommodation for travellers between Melbourne and Sydney; the day journey is a pleasant jaunt through the NSW southern agricultural region and Victoria’s equally picturesque north east.

      • Sydney – Adelaide – Kalgoorlie Perth: The Indian Pacific

        The Ghan and the Indian Pacific are Australia’s two iconic long distance railways, famous as much as anything because they cross the vast continent from one side to the other. The Indian Pacific, which travels from the west coast to east coast on a 3-day, 4,352 km trek across Australia, is billed as one of the world’s great train journeys. The three day trip (if you do it all in one go) takes you through just about every kind of terrain you’re likely to find on the Australian continent, giving travellers a true indication of how vast Australia really is.
