The Local Loop

The Savannahlander invites you to join our locals only club the “Local Loop”.

In rail parlance a “Loop” is a siding that allows you to stop and take a break to allow other trains to go racing by. We love Cairns and Far North Queensland – and taking a break while the rest of the world races around is proudly part of what we do.

The Local Loop is only for bona-fide locals who live in the Cairns region and is our way of connecting with our local friends to offer them a little something extra. We love all our passengers regardless of where they are from, but we also understand that those that live and work in the Cairns region are part of our immediate community.

Our “Local Loopers” are familiar with our country and climate and probably have seen our railmotors in action even if they have not managed to travel with us yet. We love the way that our locals promote our service to visiting friends and family and appreciate the trust you put in us to look after them for a few days!

To say thank you we have started the Local Loop where we offer to our valued locals:

  • Local discounts of up to 20% on rail travel on ANY section from Cairns to Forsayth and return.
  • Last minute discounts on packages that may be available in the following week
  • Special discounts on tours that have been cancelled by other travellers
  • Opportunities to come and see our yards and steam train on open days.

It’s simple, just click use our online form for locals or use the button at the bottom of this page

Please make note your membership for the the locals discount at the time of booking as we are unable to apply discounts to packages already booked.

We will respect your privacy and will not use your details for anything other than Savannahlander related business and promise not to sell or pass your details on to anyone else. You can cancel your membership at any time.

Join today and become part of our community, rail travel may have been around for a while but like a fine wine you will find that the romance of rail just keeps getting better.
