The Ghan

The Ghan is the 48-hour, 2,979-kilometer passenger train operating on the Adelaide-Alice Springs-Darwin Central Australian Railway on a north-south axis through the center of Australia. The service's name is an abbreviated version of its previous nickname, The Afghan Express, which comes from the Afghan camel trains that trekked the same route before the advent of the railway. The Ghan runs twice a week from Adelaide to Alice Springs, and once or twice a week to Darwin, depending on seasonal traffic and demand. On this fascinating journey across Australia, the Ghan takes you through the beautiful countryside of Adelaide through the rust-colored "Red Center" to the tropical "Top End" of Australia.
