It takes two full days and one night for the Sunlander to get to Cairns, but the time seemed to just fly by. I should describe the scenery, though I spent quite a lot of the time reading, writing or dozing. It started off with thin Eucalyptus woods that seemed to go on for most of the day. This was especially the case since we had to stop for two hours due to some motorcyclists trying to ride along the railway line and one of them coming a cropper a bit ahead of us. When we woke up the next morning, we were in savannah - very flat golden grasslands with occasional trees and blue mountains rising out of them here and there. By the time we got near Cairns the hills were covered in the dense green rainforest we had come to see.
