The Ghan Rallies To Get Australia Travelling Again
Epitomising the resilience of Australia’s tourism industry, The Ghan returned last Sunday departing Adelaide for Darwin (Northern Territory) welcoming guests onboard for their long-awaited rail journey through the heart of Australia. The unique travel experience offers forgettable views of the outback and allows travellers to discover the red centre of Australia from the comfort of the luxurious train.
Journey Beyond Chief Commercial Officer Peter Egglestone said “With more than a 90-year history, The Ghan has weathered challenges including a World War, the Great Depression and various pandemics. Its outback pioneering spirit is further cemented with its return this week,” Mr Egglestone said.
“People are experiencing ‘pandemic fatigue’ therefore we need to balance risk and take all reasonable measures to keep them safe while continuing to let them live their lives.
“To help people book with confidence, we are offering 100% refunds on new bookings made from today through 30 September, when guests are unable to travel due to government-mandated restrictions preventing them from boarding,” Mr Egglestone said.
In addition, to celebrate its return, guests eager to journey on The Ghan, travelling before 30 September on a new booking, can save up to $1,000 per person.
