Best Luxury Trains
in the World
Traversed by few and inhabited by even fewer, the Australian Outback remains one of the most desolate, inhospitable regions in the world thanks to its extreme aridity and soaring temperatures. However, guests aboard The Ghan get a rare glimpse into Australia's "Red Centre" as they enjoy luxury service between Adelaide in South Australia and Darwin in the far north. A stop in Alice Springs, in the heart of the Outback, allows visitors a chance to explore the natural beauty and indigenous culture of the region. Platinum and Gold Service guests have access to free off-train excursions that include camel rides, river cruises and tours of wildlife refuges and painted rock sites.
