Edited by Travel Weekly

    This August, The Ghan will celebrate 95 years of outback adventures and to commemorate the anniversary Journey Beyond has today launched a special birthday sale, inviting guests to become part of this celebrated history.

    For The Ghan’s 95th birthday sale, guests can benefit from 10% off a new booking in Gold Twin or Single, or 5 per cent off a Gold Premium Twin booking.

    For those looking to extend their journey and dive deeper into the Red Centre, there are savings of up to $1,000 per person available on The Ghan’s Red Centre Spectacular Tour. The Ghan’s birthday sale is available to book 15 March – 30 April 2024, for travel between 1 July – 30 November 2024.

    “The Ghan is such an important part of Australian history and culture,” says Alicia Triggs, executive general manager, Sales and Partnerships, at Journey Beyond.

    “Thank you to all of the partners and agents who have supported us through the years, we promise to continue The Ghan’s legacy and deliver an exceptional experience that’s unique to Australia.”

    The legend of The Ghan stems from the 1830s when the first Afghan cameleers arrived in Australia and blazed a permanent trail into the Red Centre.

    Over the past 95 years, the on-board experience has evolved from a basic passenger service to an all-inclusive multi-day experiential journey, showcasing regional food and wine and sharing remote parts of Australia with keen travellers. The journey’s most recent evolution is the introduction of Gold Premium, a new style of rail travel.

    Join Journey Beyond in celebrating 95 iconic years of The Ghan. A suite of new assets is now available on the Experience Hub, where agents can download, display and distribute to interested travellers.
