• Adventure through Australia on The Ghan

    The Ghan is the ultimate journey into the heart of Australia. It is an odd name for a train, but in Australian history it is a living legend. About 150 years ago, the first camels were imported along with their handlers from Afghanistan. In true Australian style, the name was soon shortened to “Ghan.’  Early explorers used camels, perfectly adaptable for traveling long distances through the hot interior and beyond all the way to Darwin. Today, train enthusiasts can make this journey with all the creature comforts these pioneers could never have imagined.
