"Kuranda Scenic Railway: Wind through tunnels and over bridges on this magnificent journey, passing Stoney Creek and Barron Falls.
You will discover the pioneering history of the tropical north from way back in the late 1800's, be astounded by a magnificent engineering feat and explore some of the great characters involved in the construction of this great railway.

The original Kuranda Scenic Railway is a spectacular journey comprising unsurpassed views of dense rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls. This famous railway winds its way on a journey of approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from Cairns to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest.
Rising from sea level to 328m, the journey to Kuranda passes through World Heritage protected tropical rainforest, past beautiful and spectacular waterfalls and into the awesome Barron Gorge. Upon reaching the village of Kuranda a rich assortment of interesting attractions and unique shopping experiences awaits you.

Kuranda Station is world renowned for its tropical gardens and historic significance. It is possibly one of the most photographed railway stations in the world. The heritage-listed buildings blend with the tropical surrounds providing a relaxed environment to enjoy. The Kuranda Railway Tea Rooms at the station offer a great range of souvenirs and refreshments.
Scenic Rail passengers can also enjoy the special ‘Royale Service’, which includes a personal hostess to provide live commentary on historic events and places of interest en route to Kuranda. Most passengers complement their rail journey with a trip on Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. This experience presents a very different view of the rainforest and the Barron Gorge. Package tours are also available incorporating Hot Air ballooning, go-kart racing, and Great Barrier Reef cruises."
