KSR – An incredible engineering feat

Construction of the Cairns-Kuranda Railway was and still is, an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude completed with picks, shovels and dynamite. This enthralling chapter in the history of North Queensland, stands as testimony to the splendid ambitions, fortitude and suffering of the hundreds of men engaged in its construction.

It also stands as a monument to the many men who we are in awe of today and those who lost their lives on this amazing project that  is now enjoyed by so many as they relax and enjoy the history, the views and the journey through 15 hand-made tunnels and across 37 bridges.
