Located in Australia, the Kuranda Scenic Railway is incredibly dangerous but also fabulously beautiful. It was built at the end of the 19th century. The rail line cuts through the picturesque rainforest of the Barron Reserve. During a trip, passengers have the opportunity to admire the most beautiful exotic plants, mountain scenery and waterfalls, the drops of water from which can even get into an open window.
All this natural splendor is very inspiring, but not for those travellers who are afraid of heights. Part of the way, trains pass over the bridge where one can see waterfalls and rocks covered with a bushy shrub, on the one hand and a dizzying cliff, on the other.
The most dangerous Kuranda Scenic Railway runs from Cairns to the nearby town of Kuranda. Just a few years ago, there was no alternative to the dangerous railroad. Nowadays, many people prefer the railway that passes through the suburbs of Stratford. Such a route is much longer, but is also much safer. The Kuranda Scenic Railway is still the best solution for travellers, it is only 37 kilometres in length. It takes about two hours to bridge the distance. Moving at high speed is prohibited.
