Join us for the Eclipse!

On 14 November, the scheduled Savannahlander departure coincides with the date of the solar eclipse. We are planning to depart the train from Cairns half an hour early (at 6.00 am) so that we can get to a viewing spot at a place called the ‘jump up’ on the Kuranda Range. Anyone can join the train for this event, and you have a choice of leaving us at either Kuranda or Mareeba. We even supply eclipse viewing glasses.

Savannahlander to Kuranda is $43.00 and you have a choice of return to Cairns by either Skyrail, the KSR service, or on one of many buses that service Kuranda.

Savannahlander to Mareeba is $60.00 and you return to Cairns by the Scheduled TransNorth bus that departs at 9.30. From there you can go all the way back to Cairns, or get off at Kuranda and finish the journey by Skyrail, KSR train or bus.

All return portions to Cairns are at your own expense and arrangements. Mareeba to Cairns is $18.00 (no need to book) or you can come back from Kuranda from as low as $4.00 on Johns Bus Service.
