For true train travel lovers the 'Savannahlander' is a trip not to be missed. The vintage 'silver bullet' rail motor snakes its way across the Gulf of Carpentaria, from Cairns on the coast all the way across to the old gold mining town of Forsayth.
It stops at small towns and tourist destinations along the way, giving the region a much-needed economic boost.
