About Kuranda Scenic Railway, Cairns

The town of Kuranda is a quaint little place located on a mountain side, the Macalister Range. Although the village town has its own raw charm, it’s the ride over the rainforest  and up to the mountain that sets the whole mood for the trip. The Kuranda railway line is only used to take tourists to and from Cairns. Hop abroad a vintage train and be prepared to take in the wonderful vistas the ride has to offer. The 37 kilometer journey makes around 2 stops and takes approximately 1 hour 45 minutes. Once you’re at the village, there are a variety of things you could do, but do remember to keep an eye on the time as the train departs only twice a day.

  • The 1hr30 train ride through the tropical rain forest felt like 15mins because we loved every sections of it. Truly spectacular views of the rain forest, the valleys below and the vista of the coastline. There were many twists and turns & tunnels, making this ride on the historic train a memorable and enjoyable experience - a must do if you're in Cairns.

  • Yes Spectacular views via the train and Sky Rail , all was a tour most of the time was waiting 1 hour before train departure then hanging around in Kuranda for 3 hours , very little to do then again great views on the Sky rail but hanging around at the end for bus to return us to Hotel

  • WOW! What a beautiful experience it was to travel by train from Freshwater station to Kuranda. The information on the history of this rail was very interesting. The views were magnificent, better than expected. The journey took a couple of hours, well worth it.

  • Second time around (25 years later) and it still hasn't lost its charm. Old-time carriages, good commentary and stunning scenery.

  • It is a good experience but we thought it was expensive. Seats are benches so if you go when it is very busy could get a little cosy. We enjoyed coming back down in the cable cars more.
