Manguri is a rail siding located 42km from the opal fields of Coober Pedy, South Australia. Due to its isolation, Ghan travellers wishing disembark at this outpost have been traditionally required to coordinate a pick-up with a Coober Pedy resident.
Given the train passes through Manguri at night, The Ghan is often flagged down by a small fire and glowing truck headlights.
Platinum and Gold Service guests will be invited to disembark to enjoy a nightcap (served with premium chocolate) by the light of an Outback bonfire. Guests can gain a full appreciation of the stunning night sky through stargazing sessions with our trained crew.
Recommended Fitness Level: Low.
