The train trip to Kuranda was brilliant! Scenery was spectacular, history commentary while on train was informative, interesting. Then to arrive at Kuranda township, was wonderful. Great day out worth the $

The lady at the Kuranda ticket office was brilliant - she patiently sorted out a failed booking via a third party and got us on the train.

The 2 hour heritage rail journey from Cairns to Kuranda and return was spectacular. The tropical scenery was amazing. As was the experience of traveling on the train on a rail track carved into the mountain. The view of the plains and of waterfalls was amazing.
