Far North Queensland’s World Heritage-listed rainforest, the Wet Tropics, are among the oldest on earth. Thousands of species of plants and hundreds of unique creatures inhabit this lush green world. The famous Kuranda Scenic Railway winds its way on a journey from Gimuy (Cairns) via Bubundji (Freshwater), to Ngunbay (Kuranda), the village in the rainforest. Rising from sea level to 327 metres, the journey to Kuranda passes spectacular waterfalls and into the stunning Barron Gorge.
Following damage sustained during ex-Tropical Cyclone Jasper, Queensland Rail crews have been working tirelessly to get Kuranda Scenic Railway services up and running again as quickly and safely as possible.
We are pleased to advise that Kuranda Scenic Railway is operating two return services daily as of Saturday 2 March 2024.
