Weathering the COVID-19 Storm
This follows the implementation of extensive travel restrictions by various Australian state governments, including national and state border closures along with restrictions on all non-essential travel as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Ghan (Adelaide – Darwin), Indian Pacific (Sydney – Perth), and The Overland (Adelaide – Melbourne) will be suspended until May 31, with Journey Beyond monitoring the situation as it evolves.
The future of The Overland service has been under a cloud for a years, and the train has only remained operational with subsidies from the Victorian and South Australian governments. The current funding arrangement expires on March 31 and with no new announcement forthcoming the premature cessation of services means The Overland has probably made its last run.
The company says all guests with travel booked on their trains through to May 31 will be provided with a credit to the value of 110% of their original booking, which will be valid for travel at a later date up to December 31 2022.
