Awesome. The only word I could use on the way back to Cairns after the jump. So glad I chose to do this rather than a bungee, the views from the plane climbing to 14,000 feet were spectacular alone. The staff were friendly and my tandem instructor was informative, professional and laid back. I have to do this again.
Cairns, Palm Cove and Northern Beaches, Australia
Kuranda village is beautiful. I went for the Rainforestation tour, (while it was a very nice nature reserve, with fantastic guides and a delicious buffet), you might want to look into what you can do in Kuranda, there are quite a few nature reserves, such as Kuala Garden that you might prefer. I still had an hour to wonder Kuranda, more than enough time if you don't want to go into any of the Gardens.
The Train up was indeed scenic and the Skyrail back was calm and beutiful.
The reef was the best thing I did in Cairns. If I could go back again, I would go on the reef at the beginning of the week and again at the end. Snorkeling above the reef with all the different fish is Majestic, Amazing and Beautiful, and seeing two massive turtles gracefully swim in front of me has become my go to place when work gets a little stressful.
The staff were friendly and the buffet served had good variety. For the love of god take a ginger pill like the staff suggest, such a shame when people get sea sickness, (but funny too).
I did have a helicopter ride booked on the way back, but the weather canceled it. Viator gave me a fair proportionate refund.
Bottom line, if your going to Queensland, you have to do the reef and this package was great value.
