The Great Southern Rail offers journeys beyond into the wide expanse of the Australian Outback. The rail journeys are steeped in the history of Australia. Since 1929 The Ghan has played a major role in access to the remote Outback, and since 1970 the Indian Pacific has joined the great coast to coast distances of Australia. The Great Southern Rail offers a journey in comfort and style to many of Australia’s popular destinations.
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.
