Cairns-Kuranda Scenic Railways

The Cairns-Kuranda line is the access point for QR's rail services to the Tablelands and has long been a tourist attraction. While tourist trains today are operated exclusively by QR, Cairns-Kuranda Steam also operated a service several days per week on this line, sometimes with an ex-South African steam locomotive.

Details are on the QR web site.
