I'm wondering if you all can help me with a dilemma. I'm contemplating a September holiday trip to the Red Centre with my husband -- a big train fan -- and my 16 year-old daughter. I can't decide if taking the 23-hour ride on the Ghan from Darwin to Alice Springs will be tolerable in the Red day-nighter seats.
If I could bring myself to fork over the big bucks for the Gold Cabins, I know the trip would be comfortable and enjoyable, but I can't see spending the majority of our trip budget on transportation.
Could anyone help me decide? Or is there some kind of discount for gold cabins available through another channel? Thanks in advance.
