A spectacular Australian outback rail holiday


The Savannahlander invites you to be a part of one of the great rail journeys in Australia. This unique outback rail experience departs Cairns weekly, winding its way through the wet tropics area of the Kuranda range and out through the Savannah country to Forsayth and back on one of our 4 day tours.  Highly personalised, you will enjoy the tour alongside our drivers in our 1960’s classic “silver-bullet” railmotors. With options for short tours and visits to Cobbold Gorge and Undara, this is a must-do tour. A relaxed pace, great company and travelling in style through country you will never forget.
