Journeys : Oct Nov 2012
Australia’s Great Train Journeys are steeped in the history of Australia. The nostalgia and romance stems from the grand old days of Australian rail travel, when steam locomotives hauled the Indian Pacific and The Ghan through Australia’s harsh interior. Today, Australia’s Great Train Journeys give travellers a unique window to Outback Australia. Aboard The Ghan and the Indian Pacific, guests experience the journey of a lifetime, from one side of Australia to another, all in comfort and style. Dining aboard The Ghan or the Indian Pacific is a highlight of the trip. Enjoying fine Australian food and wines as the spectacular scener y passes by the window is an experience to remember. Platinum and Gold Service guests dine in the elegantly-themed Queen Adelaide Restaurant Car where they enjoy a choice of fine food freshly prepared by the onboard chefs. The seasonal menu features distinctly Australian dishes such as saltwater bar ramundi and gr illed kangaroo fillet. Meals can be complemented with a selection of premium Australian wines and beverages. The Ghan is an incomparable way to travel to the two jewels of Australia’s Northern Territory – the Red Centre and the tropical Top End. One of the great train journeys Window on the Outback of the world, The Ghan is named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route, from one edge of this continent to the other, through the ver y centre of Australia. The Indian Pacific travels an impressive 4,352 kilometres between Sydney and Perth. From the Blue Mountains to the Nullarbor Desert, guests experience some of Australia’s most breathtaking scenery and the longest stretch of straight rail track in the world, across the Nullarbor Plain.
