How to Travel with Great Southern Railway
All travel on GSR trains must be booked in advance. Seats and sleeping berths are reserved and you cannot board without a reservation. The Indian Pacific, The Ghan and The Great Southern are luxury trains that are marketed as Land Cruises for people wanting an experience of a lifetime. They generally do not operate as public transport and do not pick up or drop off along the way.
The Overland train is a more traditional train that, whilst luxurious, is a more traditional train for travellers between Melbourne and Adelaide and intermediate stations along the way.
