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.

The uphill climb is slow but extremely scenic...an amazing feat of engineering. The return trip on the gondola above the rainforest is a " must do ". Kerranda itself nestled high in the hills is an interesting little town well worth a browse around.

Good day combined with Sky Rail, an enjoyable way to have a lay day in exciting Cairns area. Karunda is an interesting place to visit.

Had been recommended this journey by our hotel and it was a cracking day out.
The carriages are a nice step back in time allowing to really take in the views.
Lovely insight of the history behind the line and the people who helped to build it.
Really enjoyed our trip.

The ride had some good views, but overall I felt like it was overpriced. You can easily get up to Kuranda for a few bucks on a bus compared to over $40 on the train. If you do the train, only take it one way and save some money.
