Owner description: Kuranda Scenic Railway is the original scenic rail journey to Kuranda. This spectacular experience travels over bridges and through tunnels hand-made by North Queensland's pioneers over 100 years ago. Traversing the World Heritage listed rainforest of the Barron Gorge National Park, this is one of the world's great railway journeys.

This is a nice relaxing scenic way to travel up to Kuranda. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the train stopped a couple of times to allow you to take photos.

Fun rail trip on historic cars. It's pulled by a diesel now. Stopped for the falls. There is great scenery along the trip. At the end, you can take the "sky train" cable over the rainforest if you like, but keep in mind that the cable ride does NOT return to the same point as the train..

Lovely old train with lots of atmosphere. Good value for money. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Wonderful scenery along the way. The loudspeaker on the train could be louder and more details in other languages would be an improvement. Overall, though super trip. Definitely something you should do in Cairns.

Its a scenic trip up, stopping to see Barron Falls, and Karunda is touristy but cute with river cruises to see freshwater crocs available.
