Kuranda Railway and Barron Gorge Cairns Australia

Ted and I visited Kuranda 10 years ago and went on the Kuranda scenic train, then took a short walk to the Kuranda village strolled through the markets and caught the Skyrail back down the mountain. If you have never done this and are in Cairns, Queensland Australia, I highly recommend it.

If you look closely you can see the carriages on the skyrail taken here from Barron Gorge

Today we hired a car and drove to Kuranda Village. There’s a good market here to have a wander.

Kuranda Railway station is well preserved and picturesque with its tropical plant arrangements on the platforms and beautifully maintained surrounding gardens, with a cafe to buy a drink and light refreshments whilst sitting and enjoying this charming station.

A little tour 😉

After thoroughly enjoying the Kuranda Station we went for a short drive to Barron Gorge in the Barron National Park. The walkway down to the Gorge has several viewing points and is well done. It’s like taking a treetop view walk as it’s literally amongst the tree tops. You get a feel for what it might be like being a bird flying amongst the beautiful green leafy trees with their twisted intriguing branches.

If you head into Cairns for dinner, this restaurant on The Esplanade do amazing Italian and seafood. I had the clams 👌🏼 and Ted the Barramundi.
The banana and ginger pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream was pretty good also!
