Embark from Cairns on one of Australia’s most picturesque and historic rail journeys – the Kuranda Scenic Railway.
Climbing the McAlister Range, the train and heritage-listed carriages pass through the natural beauty of ancient rainforest to the fern-festooned station of Kuranda.
Choose to travel in Heritage Class or Gold Class, which includes a welcoming ‘mocktail’ at Freshwater Station plus full host service on board. Enjoy the ride with free-flowing wine, beer and other beverages plus a selection of tasty treats like Anzac biscuits, muffins and frozen mango.
At the top of the range, swap your train carriage for a Skyrail Rainforest Cableway gondola. There’s the option to take up a Skyrail Canopy Glider adventure – coasting above the rainforest on board an open-air gondola, accompanied by a ranger giving commentary along the way.
