Rail Tours, Cairns

#17 of 150 in Tours in Cairns
Cairns rail tours open a window into some classic Australian landscapes, allowing you to journey by a classic "silver bullet" scenic train. It's a great way to travel and see lots without getting tired, lost, or bored. You can also arrange visits to the Chillagoe caves, Cobbold Gorge, and the Undara Lava Tubes. This 3-hour journey through the Australian outback will take you to a quaint village of Kuranda, sometimes described as a "little hippie town."

Where to stay in Cairns

Though Cairns seems to offer an endless selection of cozy rooms, most budget-friendly options remain fully booked through the high season, stretching from June to September. Reserve early if you want a hotel room packed with amenities, or look for alternative lodgings in the city's smaller inns. As the backpacker capital of northern Queensland, Cairns features dozens of economical hostels providing comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. For something far more luxurious, look for centrally located rental apartments with spacious rooms and harbor views.
