The Ghan is an iconic train journey – one that for many Australians is on their ‘must-do’ travel list. In 1980, the original Ghan track was abandoned in favour of a new standard gauge line built w ith termite-proof sleepers further to the west, to avoid the potential flooding and other problems encountered along the old route. The Ghan has jour neyed across the plains and into the heart of Australia for more than 70 years, connecting Adelaide and Alice Springs. In that time it has become renowned as one of the world’s great train jour neys and a legend within the Australian psyche. That legend soared to new heights with the extension of The Ghan service to Darwin in February To experience The Ghan, call us on 1300 368 111 or visit your RACT Travelworld branch. 2004 follow ing the completion of the new $1.3 billion Alice Springs to Darwin Railway.
