The Northern Territory News reports today that a new luxury passenger service is planned for The Ghan, the famous inland Australia railway line that runs from Adelaide to Darwin.

Prices have not yet been announced, but the article mentions that GSR, the operators of the Ghan, had been studying a similar service that operates in South Africa for $1000 per night. According to GSR’s website, they expect the service to begin in late 2008.

Of course, for those of us who can’t afford to pay four figures for every night of a trip, there are still the standard classes of travel on the Ghan; it’s worth noting on that table that there are significant discounts for members of YHA Australia.
