Breaking news: motor rail services resume on The Ghan in April 2021.
Earlier this year, all motor rail services were halted on the Ghan and the Indian Pacific. However, this is soon to be reversed on The Ghan only, while the COVID-19 border restrictions block eastern states movements. Hopefully, this will likely change and the Indian Pacific will come back to life with its own motor rail services too.
For those planning ahead, you will need to submit your car details along with your cabin requests. You need both to even hold a berth on the Ghan. To help you with this process, this is what you will need to provide.
