All aboard! Step onto the famous Kuranda Railway for a memorable train ride. Once in Kuranda, you can stroll through the markets and visit the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary.
Your ride over Stoney Creek and Barron Falls to the village of Kuranda is an unforgettable experience.

It's also the site of the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, home to Australia's largest butterfly collection.
