The legend of The Ghan stems from the 1930s when the first Afghan cameleers arrived in Australia and blazed a permanent trail into the Red Centre. This legendary train continues to evoke a frontier spirit, a romantic connection to the land, and travelling on it is a moving and unforgettable life experience. Over the past 95 years, the on-board experience has evolved from a basic passenger service to an all-inclusive multi-day experiential journey, showcasing regional food and wine and sharing remote parts of Australia with keen travellers. The journey’s most recent evolution is the introduction of Gold Premium, a new style of rail travel.

Legend has it The Old Ghan was once stranded for two weeks in one spot and the engine driver shot wild goats to feed his passengers. This is a far cry from the epicurean adventure that The Ghan has become. Back then, The train carried more than 100 passengers and supplies bound for the remote town of Stuart, later to be called Alice Springs. Two days later, its historic journey was complete.
