    Amazing scenery along the journey up to Kuranda Rainforest. Plenty of photo spots along the way, so do get your cameras ready. Will do it again if I ever make my way to Kuranda!
  • Jia Jun Vernon 31 May 2018
    Very relaxing ride up the Kuranda Village Centre. Scenic views along the way there, especially the Barron Falls. Can't wait to do it again soon! Do not miss this!

    It was quite fun to ride on the train with the English guide onboard. I got some idea about the area I passed. It will be better if there could be a package combined with sky trail.
  • CHO YING 1 Oct 2017
    The view is not that stunning as expected. The train is comfortable and good for pictures.
  • Andrea 12 Aug 2017
    The Kuranda Scenic Heritage Railway was fun! Beautiful views and just the right amount of history.
  • s 16 Apr 2017
    The railway is absolutely great. Filled with immense knowledge of how it was built and also beautiful views of the entire landscape.Would recommend it if you are visiting Cairns.
  • Hardy 6 Jan 2017
    A good recreational activity though you can't see much of the scenery through the train. One side of it is almost rocks and slopes on the other side. Overall good experience.Highly recommended. !!!
  • Pai Yu 11 Feb 2019
    With the original steam train, you can see the inferior Byron Falls on your way to Kuranda, where the train will stop and let everyone take pictures, a very interesting experience!
