The Ghan

Adelaide Parklands Terminal Richmond Rd, Keswick SA 5035, Australia

Introduction of The Ghan

The Ghan, a symbol of Australia's train, which began operation in 1877, has now become a real landscape on Australia's central rail line, a route that runs through mainland that allows passengers to experience the purest Australian scenery, from the lush beauty of the interior to the luxuriant tropics of the north, and is one of the top ten train scenic lines in the world.

(Adelaide Parklands Terminal) boarded The Ghan, at Adelaide Parkland Station in Adelaide and looked out of the window as the view gradually changed from the rolling green mountains of South Australia to the rusty red inland, and eventually into the tropical scenery of (Top End) at the top of Australia. From the warm south, through the distant red center, to the hot north. The legendary The Ghan, logo is camel, which is said to rely mainly on camels, especially Afghan camels, in times without trains.

If you board the Gan from south to north in Adelaide, the view outside the window will gradually change from the rolling mountain view of South Australia to the rough inland, rust-red middle, and you will finally be greeted by Darwin's tropical rainforest and cool sea breeze. On the way, a few stations can stop and join the local tour group to explore the famous inland towns of Alice Springs (Alice Springs) and Catherine (Katherine),. Or cruise Katherine Canyon (Katherine Gorge), canoeing down the river to feel the most primitive Australian scenery.
