Passing through some of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth, it’s an unr ivalled holiday experience you’ ll remember for a lifetime. You will be completely comfortable in your Gold Service twin sleeper cabin, an intimate lounge by day converting to an upper and lower sleeping berth by night with its own compact ensuite. Sit back, relax and enjoy the kind of effortless and enjoyable holiday you’ve always dreamed of. Take in the sights as they roll past from the comfort of your cabin or while you’re enjoying a delicious meal in the beautiful Queen Adelaide Restaurant. For the ultimate in ease and simplicity, you need do little more than board the train and enjoy the ride, as you watch some of the countr y’s most magnificent landscapes slip by. But if you’re up for a modest adventure and have a little more time up your sleeve, there’s plenty more to see and do along the way, from the bright city lights at either end of your journey to the never ending natural wonders in between. Through tropical summer on The Ghan There’s no question the Top End is a special part of the world any time of year. But every year, from around November to February, this reg ion enters ‘tropical summer’. It’s a time of renewal as the life- giving rains quench the sun-drenched landscape. So while the tropical sun keeps temperatures warm, the landscapes, colours, f lora and fauna are unique. The scenic surrounds transform as lush green vegetation bursts forth. Lightning stor ms bring the skies to life in spectacular style. The rivers, creeks and waterfalls all flow freely.
