The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a name for the railway line that runs from Cairns, Queensland, Australia, to the nearby town of Kuranda in the rainforest.
A spectacular journey comprises unsurpassed views of dense rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls.
The Cairns-Kuranda Railway was constructed between 1882 and 1891 and even today is considered an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude. Hundreds of men were employed to build the 15 hand-made tunnels and 37 bridges that stand as a monument to the pioneers of tropical North Queensland who lost their lives while working on the railway.
