Kuranda Scenic Railway

When you ride the Kuranda Scenic Railway, you’ll meander through a lush green world, a tropical paradise framed by rugged mountains and waterfalls tumbling forever into deep ravines.

Authentic timber carriages will take you between Cairns and the pretty village of Kuranda, via hand-built tunnels and across towering bridges, through the awe-inspiring Barron Gorge. Your senses will come alive to the exotic beauty of Tropical North Queensland’s wet tropical rainforests, marvelling at the incredible array of plants and animals witnessed along the way.

Admire breathtaking scenery and explore the fascinating past, onboard the must see Kuranda Scenic Railway.
