Despite recent negative media coverage regarding the popularity of long distance rail travel nothing could be further from the truth.

Truth is people want Capital City-Capital City High Speed Rail at 500 km/h along with The Ghan, Indian Pacific and Overland.

Fact is most passengers for High Speed Rail are sitting in planes at 40,000 ft waiting for Governments to build High Speed Rail.

Capital City-Capital City High Speed Rail at 500 km/h enables:

  • Sydney-Goulburn in 30 minutes
  • Melbourne-Shepparton in 30 minutes

Some people then think that we can also have Metro Rail Technology.

Commuters on suburban services will be left waiting around if train schedules have to juggle normal suburban trains that have had a network cutback just to fit in Metro Technology.

Great Southern Rail who operates The Ghan, Indian Pacific and Overland are waiting to take your call now for a great holiday experience.

Are you looking to book your next rail adventure? The Ghan and Indian Pacific are now on sale for the 2018/19 travel year.

Book online or call the Great Southern Rail Travel Centre on 13 21 47 to secure your cabin now in either Gold Service or Platinum Service aboard one of the world’s greatest rail journeys.

For the first time in 2018, guests travelling from Perth to Sydney aboard the Indian Pacific can now choose to step off in the Blue Mountains. Here, you can take in the magnificent views via cable car, walking trail or the world’s steepest railway.

Due to popular demand, Great Southern Rail has extended The Ghan Expedition season, opening the four-day journey for bookings between April and October 2018.

Take advantage of the longer season and climb aboard The Ghan in Darwin for the ultimate Outback adventure taking you to Katherine, Alice Springs and the fascinating underground mining town of Coober Pedy.
