Great Southern Rail

Australia’s Great Train Journeys are steeped in the history of Australia. The nostalgia and romance of our trains stem from the grand days of rail travel in the early 1920’s when steam locomotives hauled the Indian Pacific and The Ghan. These great trains navigated deep into the outback of South Australia and crossed the continent, becoming the primary form of reliable transport and the lifeline to many rural communities. Since their inception, the great trains of Australia have inspired a spirit of romance and adventure that still captures the hearts of Australian and International travellers today.

The culture of long distance rail travel in Australia was built on the idea of travelling from point to point. Great Southern Rail’s vision is to build the whole touring experience over and above being simply a rail transport operator. Major initiatives such as the creation of the Great Southern Rail holiday program, the extension of The Ghan journey to Darwin in 2004, the relaunch of the newly refurbished The Overland, and the introduction of Platinum Service and the launch of The Southern Spirit are evidence of a continuous product improvement strategy and commitment to tourism growth by Great Southern Rail.
