Rail Plus is saving travellers almost $650 per person by providing a free upgrade on two of Australia’s most iconic rail journeys.
Passengers booking a Red Sleeper ticket on eastbound services of Indian Pacific* or southbound services of The Ghan** before 31 August – for travel between 1 August and 30 November 2012 – will be upgraded to Gold Service.
Gold Service passengers travel in a compact sleeper cabin with en-suite, have full access to the trains’ relaxing Outback Explorer lounges, and enjoy freshly prepared meals and waiter service in the stylish Queen Adelaide Restaurant car. On boarding the classic journey they are also greeted with a glass of bubbly and during the trip they can enjoy music and a detailed commentary through an in-cabin sound system.
On its four-day journey between Perth and Sydney, Indian Pacific takes in scenery as diverse as the treeless plains of The Nullarbor desert and the deep gorges of the Blue Mountains, with stops along the way in Broken Hill, Adelaide and gold rich Kalgoorlie.
The Ghan’s two-day journey between Darwin and Adelaide is just as spectacular, with passengers passing through Tennant Creek, Katherine, Alice Springs – gateway to Ayres Rock and the Red Centre – and the MacDonnell Ranges before arriving in South Australia’s capital.
