This famous railway winds its way on a journey from Cairns to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest, with Freshwater situated along the line with views of the surrounding mountains. Rising from sea level to 328m, the journey to Kuranda passes spectacular waterfalls and into the stunning Barron Gorge. The journey includes an English commentary and all passengers receive a commentary companion which includes information on the history of the railways construction, a trip map and a map of Kuranda. Upon reaching the village of Kuranda a rich assortment of interesting attractions and unique shopping experiences awaits you.

Tuck into tropical fruits and fresh seafood​

Bananas at Rustys Markets

Bananas are, of course, synonymous with Far North Queensland – but there are a wealth of other local delights to sample during your stay. 

As well as tropical fruits, you’ll find the local, fresh seafood is hard to beat. If you’re staying for a while, you might even get the chance to catch your own! You can also explore Australian Indigenous foods including rainforest nuts, fruits and spices. 

Restaurants proudly showcase their roots, with produce including kangaroo, emu and crocodile ready to sample. 

With a profusion of experiences and produce, whatever your interests and appetite, you’re unlikely to ever go hungry in Cairns.
