The Choice is Yours

Travelling with friends, family, or a loved one gives you the opportunity to share special places and moments, making it that little bit more special. Whether it’s the glow of morning as it touches the expanse of the Nullarbor Plain, a starlit dinner at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station, dolphins frolicking in an azure blue ocean on the east coast of Australia – or even just chatting into the evening in the Outback Explorer Lounge on your chosen train journey – some moments are simply better shared.

There’s something to be said, though, for enjoying your own company, for taking time out to think and reflect, for embracing solitude and experiencing a mindful moment that belongs to you and you alone. That’s the pleasure of Gold Single on The Ghan, Indian Pacific or Great Southern. You can travel with friends, without having to share your space.

Gold Restaurant

Picture waking in the morning, making a cup of tea in the carriage kitchenette, sipping your brew as you contemplate the evolving landscape through your private panoramic window. You meet your friends in the Queen Adelaide restaurant, or make new friends, supping on a sumptuous breakfast with a barista-made coffee. Then the train rolls to a stop and you alight to dive deeper into your surrounds on an off-train experience, perhaps with your social group, perhaps not – after all, you’ll see them on board later and share your observations as you socialise over sundowners.

You may be solo but you’re not alone. Connect with others or connect with yourself. The choice is yours in Gold Single.
