Itinerary

Kuranda Scenic Railway

Your carriage awaits! The Kuranda Scenic Railway has been climbing its way through World Heritage rainforest for 120 years. Rising 328m above sea level, you’ll experience an elevated panorama of surrounding rainforest and gorges, and no less than 15 handmade tunnels cut into the Macalister Ranges.

This train is still considered an iconic engineering accomplishment in this day and age, though the historical beauty will remind you of a yesteryear era. Over 37 breathtaking bridges, you’ll pass by natural wonders such as the flourishing Stoney Creek Falls and remarkable Barron Gorge, close enough to touch.
