Description

The Savannahlander is a train journey which begins in Cairns, Australia. It is one of the great rail experiences of the world as it rattles its way from the coast, up the scenic Kuranda Range (the Kuranda scenic railway) including stops at Barron Falls and Stoney Creek, through World Heritage listed rainforests to Kuranda. It then continues on through the agricultural areas of the Atherton Tablelands then into the Gulf Savannah region - to "outback" Australia. The Savannahlander is not only a unique train trip but a great way to see the Chillagoe Caves, Cobbold Gorge and the Undara Lava Tubes.
