For a rail experience like no other, travel in exclusive Platinum Service on The Ghan and Indian Pacific

Almost twice the size of the Gold Service cabins, the Platinum fully en suite cabins have been designed to a brief that called for all the modern comforts in classic style with a distinctly Australian character.

To complement this, Great Southern Rail has also created a number of deluxe touches including 24 hour in-cabin steward service.

Each spacious cabin features an oversized panoramic window and an additional interior window offering a unique perspective on the ever-changing Australian landscape from both sides of the train.

During the day, the cabin is a private lounge with a moveable table and two ottomans giving plenty of room to entertain or to simply relax and enjoy the journey.

By night your private cabin converts to your choice of comfortable double or twin beds with high quality bedding and the en suite facilities are equipped with premium fittings, full size shower, vanity with cupboard space, mirror and toilet facilities.

All restaurant meals in the elegant Queen Adelaide Restaurant Carriage are included and there is also the Outback Explorer Lounge Car where you can relax and enjoy a drink from the extensive bar while you enjoy the passing scenery.

While travelling in Platinum Service private cabins, at no extra cost guests will also enjoy:

-Beverages in the Outback Explorer Lounge - premium wine, standard spirits, beers, soft drinks, coffee and tea
- Off Train Excursions - available on the Indian Pacific at Broken Hill, Adelaide and Kalgoorlie and on The Ghan at Alice Springs and Katherine
- Dining at leisure in the famed Queen Adelaide Restaurant with flexible reservation options allowing for longer lunches and intimate dinners for two

Private transfers up to 50km to/from the rail station at major stations ie Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Alice Springs and Sydney or airport pre or post-journey and also benefit from increased checked-in luggage allowance (3 x 25kg bags per person). When making Platinum Service bookings please advise the locations for pick up and drop off at time of reservation.

Platinum Service has been designed to meet the needs of the discerning traveller on one of the world's great train journeys through the heart of Australia.
