The modern train station was built in 1915, but originally the railway connected Cairns with Herberton. And it was only in 1891 that a railway line was built through the famous Kuranda.
The railway leads through numerous tunnels and huge gorges, past picturesque waterfalls and high cliffs. The trip from Cairns to Kuranda takes about two hours, and all this time you can admire the breathtaking scenery from the windows of the train.
