Aloomba: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Goldsborough Valley, Wooroonooran National Park


Within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, nestled below the rugged Bellenden Ker Range, Goldsborough Valley features lush lowland rainforest and the clear flowing waters and deep pools of the picturesque Mulgrave River. This section of Wooroonooran National Park is home to a variety of birds and butterflies, and many kinds of freshwater fish can be seen in the river.

Enjoy a relaxing picnic by the river or set up camp in the spacious grassy camping area. Take a short walk through the rainforest to Kearneys Falls or embark on the 19 kilometre one-way Goldfield trail which passes between Queensland's two highest peaks (Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker) and leads to the Boulders Scenic Reserve near Babinda. Canoe on the river (canoeing conditions are best between March and May) or ride a mountain bike along the Goldfield Trail for eight kilometres to the East Mulgrave causeway.

Kuranda Scenic Railway


The original Kuranda Scenic Railway is a spectacular journey comprising unsurpassed views of dense rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls. This famous railway winds its way on a journey of approximately one hour and 45 minutes from Cairns to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest.

The Cairns-Kuranda Railway was constructed between 1882 and 1891 and even today is considered an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude. Hundreds of men were employed to build the 15 hand-made tunnels and 37 bridges that stand as a monument to the pioneers of tropical North Queensland who lost their lives while working on the railway.

Gold Class offers passengers a touch of luxury. Club-style seating, appetisers, refreshments and an exclusive gift pack combine to create an unforgettable experience. Discover the warm ambience of the historical decor in Gold Class, with cedar interior, individual lounge seating and historical photographs.

Kuranda Scenic Railway is also proud to partner with the attractions of Kuranda to form unique day tours such as the Classic Experience tour combining the railway with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Rainforestation features in their Rainforest Experience tour, Tjapukai in their Dreamtime Experience tour and Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Butterfly Sanctuary in their Wildlife Experience tour.

Cairns Amateurs


The Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival is three days of fun, fashion, glamour, food and entertainment built around two days of horse racing in Cairns.

What began as a small meeting in 1959, designed to bring city and country together, has expanded over the years to become one of Australia's premier spring horse racing carnivals. Operated by the Far North Queensland Amateur Turf Club Inc., their event has become widely, and affectionately, known as "The Cairns Amateurs".

59 years on, the Cairns Amateurs is complemented by a host of social activities, some formal and some very informal including a number of Members-only and corporate functions as well as events and areas for the general public on both race days.

The beautiful mild September climate entices large crowds of locals as well as interstate visitors.
