The Ghan Platinum Service
Platinum Service is a new luxury level of train travel, like no other Australian train travel accommodation. Platinum Cabins are approximately twice the size of our standard Gold Twin Cabins with each room offering deluxe accommodation including double beds, a spacious ensuite bathroom and 24-hour room service, all the modern comforts, in a classic style, with a distinctly Australian character. Platinum Service has been designed to meet the needs of the discerning traveller looking for that next level of comfort that will truly be the ultimate way to explore the heart of Australia in style.
Spacious private cabins, each with a full ensuite, are part of the Platinum Service experience. Almost double the size of Gold Service cabins, they have premium fittings, a shower, a vanity unit with ample cupboard space, a mirror, toilet facilities and an in-cabin safe.
Panoramic windows give you the best seats in the house for watching the world roll by. Each cabin also features an interior window, allowing views from both sides of the train, so you won’t miss a thing.
During the day, your cabin will be configured as a private lounge, with deluxe lounge seating, a table and two ottomans. By night, they convert to a comfortable bedroom, with either a double bed or twin beds.
Platinum and Gold Service guests can choose when they dine in the exclusive and elegant Queen Adelaide Restaurant Car, where a regional-based menu is prepared by onboard chefs. Three meals a day are served: full or continental breakfasts, sumptuous lunches and a la carte dinners. Special dietary requirements can be catered for and should be requested at the time of booking. Meals are accompanied by a selection of fine Australian wines, or other beverages.
A short stroll from your sleeper carriage is the cozy, club-like Outback Explorer Lounge. Often the center of activity on the journey, the lounge is ideal for socializing with your fellow travelers from around the globe, relaxing, reading or just enjoying the picturesque scenery
Platinum Service guests also have the chance to explore parts of Australia along the rail line on Off Train Excursions which are included in the fare. Get to know the Top End town of Katherine and legendary Alice Springs.
The luggage allowance for all Platinum Service guests now is very generous with three pieces of luggage included, weighing up to 25kg per piece. To top off this five-star experience, Platinum Service guests are provided with private transfers at the start and conclusion of their journey.
With in-cabin steward service, music, journey commentary, and much more, Platinum Service is designed to make your rail adventure truly unbeatable.
