THE Ghan is back on track in Central Australia.

Following a temporary hiatus due to COVID-19 and the recent easing of South Australian and Northern Territory border restrictions, The Ghan is set to resume on Sunday 30 August departing from Adelaide.

Journey Beyond chief executive Chris Tallent said it was great to see The Ghan bounce back following the global pandemic.

"The Ghan has been part of Australian rail history for 90 years and has survived a world war, the Great Depression and various pandemics, so it's great to see it back in action once more," Mr Tallent said.

"We understand many Australians have forgone holidays or had to change their plans and we are pleased to be able to start helping them experience their long-awaited travels."

"The easing of border restrictions has come just in time to help people from the southern states enjoy a beautifully warm dry season in Darwin."

The Ghan is a two-night, three-day journey from Adelaide to Darwin or a three-night, four-day journey from Darwin to Adelaide with stops in Alice Springs, Katherine and Coober Pedy.

To help guests celebrate the relaunch, exclusive online offers have also been released including the two-night Ghan from $1899 and the three-night Ghan Expedition from $2649 per person.

The Ghan's sister train, the Indian Pacific, may resume its travels between Perth and Sydney later in 2020 pending updates on border restrictions.
