Cross continental train in Australia

The Ghan operates from Darwin to Adelaide and the Indian Pacific from Perth to Sydney and vice versa and this deal is available for travel in the refurbished Red Sleeper service which has recently undergone an AUD$6 million facelift.

Red Sleeper service includes access to the new "Red Gum Lounges" – perfect for relaxing with children in spacious and comfortable surroundings, whilst admiring the spectacular scenery and the re-furbished Matilda Cafes for affordable and tasty light meals, snacks and drinks.

The fun of the journey is the experience both on and off of the train. Stopovers en-route give families the chance to really experience the spectacular regions the trains travel through. Canoeing down Katherine Gorge, camel riding in Alice Springs and visiting the art galleries of Broken Hill are just a few of the off-train activities available.

Red Sleeper air-conditioned cabins feature a compact twin-share berth fitted with two facing lounge chairs by day that convert to upper and lower berths by night - perfect for family holidays across Australia. Twin berth sleepers have a wash basin, while showers and toilets are located nearby at the end of each carriage.

Free child place with each adult travelling in Red Sleeper service saves up to £650 per child (up to age 15).

Bookings must be made by 30 September 2012 for travel before 31 January 2013
