Your Train experience will commence or conclude at either the Cairns/Freshwater Station or Kuranda Station, depending on your direction of travel:

Cairns Station -
It is possible to terminate your tour at Cairns Railway Station if you choose a one way transfer.  Cairns Railway Station has a dedicated platform, is centrally located and within easy walking distance of most city accommodations.  

Freshwater Connection - is a popular departure point.  Situated in the nearby suburb of Freshwater with views of the surrounding mountains, visitors can enjoy a hearty breakfast (extra cost) in authentic antique railway carriages. The Station also includes a railway museum, pioneer cottage, gift shop.

  • Departs 8:50am and 9:50am

Kuranda Station - is world renowned for its tropical gardens and historic significance. It is possibly one of the most photographed railway stations in the world.

Kuranda Village:

This ‘Village in the Rainforest’ has numerous attractions including a butterfly sanctuary, a colourful bird aviary, koala park, walking tracks and a diverse range of markets (open every day from 9am to 3pm), shops, cafes and restaurants (extra costs).

We recommend allowing yourself two to three hours in Kuranda.

Language Options:
Queensland Rail have developed a unique and interactive app to give customers the opportunity to listen to commentary while they sit back, relax and take in the many historical sites on-board the Kuranda Scenic Railway.  The apps are available in English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese/Mandarin & German for Apple from the iTunes app store and from Google Plus for Android users.  Please ensure you download the app prior to visiting Kuranda Scenic Railway's Stations.  If you don't have a headset they are available for purchase at the gift shops in Freshwater or Kuranda for $1.

How to Get There:

Self Drive:
If you have your own vehicle, you will not require transfers from your accommodation. This package automatically includes a one-way transfer from Kuranda Scenic Railway’s Freshwater Connection Railway Station to Skyrail’s Smithfield Terminal.

We recommend you enjoy Skyrail up in the morning and the Scenic Railway back in the afternoon. You will find that there is plenty of parking at Skyrail, no wait for transfers to Freshwater station, a cafe and also a short transfer turnaround back to Skyrail when you arrive on the train in the afternoon.

Coach Transfer: Skyrail runs a regular coach transfer service from most hotels in Cairns, the Northern Beaches (Trinity Beach & Palm Cove) and Port Douglas areas. If you require a coach transfer, please advise name of hotel in your booking request.
