RES­I­DENTS in the Cairns re­gion are be­ing of­fered half­price tick­ets to ride on the Ku­randa Scenic Rail­way on Aus­tralia Day on Jan­uary 26.

Mem­ber for Bar­ron River Craig Craw­ford said the spe­cial of­fer was an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to take ad­van­tage of the na­tional hol­i­day and ex­pe­ri­ence for them­selves the iconic KSR – which was re­cently named as one of TripAd­vi­sor’s Top 10 Ex­pe­ri­ences in Aus­tralia.

“This is the fourth year in a row Queens­land Rail has pro­vided this bar­gain for lo­cals on Aus­tralia Day, giv­ing peo­ple liv­ing in Cairns and sur­round­ing ar­eas the chance to be a tourist for a day in their own back­yard,” Mr Craw­ford said.

“For one day only, lo­cals can en­joy half-price travel on the KSR, and see for them­selves one of the most renowned rail jour­neys in the world that peo­ple come from far and wide to see.

“The Aus­tralia Day sale gives peo­ple the per­fect ex­cuse to get their fam­ily and friends to­gether, sit back and en­joy the an­cient Ku­randa Range all from the com­fort of the award­win­ning Her­itage or Gold Class car­riages.

“The Ku­randa Range is in its prime at this time of year, es­pe­cially after sum­mer rains, and is a sight not to be missed.”

To cel­e­brate the na­tional hol­i­day, a cus­tomer event will be held at Fresh­wa­ter Sta­tion with an Aussie Bush Band and clas­sic Aussie bar­be­cue in the morn­ing.

A one-way ticket from Cairns to Ku­randa will cost as lit­tle as $25 per adult and $12.50 per child, pro­vid­ing an af­ford­able, fam­ily-friendly way to ex­plore and cel­e­brate the beau­ti­ful Cairns re­gion this Aus­tralia Day.

Con­di­tions ap­ply. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 1800 KSRAIL (577 245) or visit
