THE GHAN – ONBOARD EXPERIENCE

PICK YOUR LEVEL OF COMFORT BELOW

The Ghan offers three levels of service:

  • Platinum Service
  • Gold Service
  • Red Service


PLATINUM SERVICE

The first thing you’ll notice about your Platinum cabin is the abundance of space, almost twice the size of a Gold Twin Cabin. By day your cabin is configured as a private lounge with deluxe lounge seating, a table and two ottomans. By night you’ll sleep easy as the lounges convert to a comfortable bedroom with either a double bed or twin beds.

Feeling peckish? Step out of your spacious cabin and into the Platinum Club where an all inclusive menu is prepared by on-board chefs using fresh local fare. Our seasonal menu features mouth-watering dishes such as saltwater barramundi and grilled kangaroo fillet.

Platinum Service fare includes hearty breakfasts, two course lunches and three course dinners. Vegetarian, children’s and limited special dietary meals are available when you make your booking.

You may also choose to complement your meal with our selection of wines and beverages included in your fare.

During the day, the compact Twin Berth Sleeper Cabins offer a comfortable three seater lounge, converting to an upper and lower sleeping berth at night.
