Kuranda Scenic Railway
The original Kuranda Scenic Railway is a spectacular journey comprising unsurpassed views of dense rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the World Heritage listed Barron Gorge National Park.
Rising from sea level to 328m, this famous railway takes approximately 1 hour 50 minutes to wind its way through 15 hand carved tunnels, across the giant bridge over Stoney Creek Falls and past the spectacular Barron Falls then onto Kuranda, the village in the rainforest.
This 120 year old railway is considered an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude even today. The railway is now Heritage Listed and a National Engineering Landmark.
Passengers are now able to experience this journey in our exclusive Gold Class carriages. Gold Class offers exclusive vintage green carriages with individual club-style seating, dedicated hostess and light refreshments including Australian sparkling wine, wine & beer. Each guest also receives a Gold Class souvenir gift.
