What You Can Expect
Enjoy a scenic, historical train journey through the Barron Gorge past cascading waterfalls to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest. Spend the day wandering the unique township, exploring the markets, unusual handicrafts and all that Kuranda has to offer.
Return to Cairns aboard the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and glide over pristine World Heritage-listed rainforest suspended high above the lush tropical canopy. Enjoy stops along the way with interpretive boardwalks through the rainforest. The return transfer to your original departure point is included.
Rainforestation Upgrade: You can enhance your rainforest experience with an optional trip to Rainforestation. Experience a 45-minute rainforest tour, aboard a World War II Army Duck while your guide points out ferns, orchids, strangler figs and stinging trees, as well as birds such as the azure kingfisher and a host of other animals and reptiles. Enjoy a buffet lunch and the Dreamtime Walk where you will learn about Aboriginal culture with a traditional corroboree, boomerang and spear throwing. Meet Australian animals including wombats, dingoes and crocodiles, hand feed kangaroos or have your photo taken cuddling a koala.
Day 2 Great Barrier Reef Cruise and Scenic 30-minute Helicopter Tour
Your trip begins with a cruise aboard Osprey V to the Great Barrier Reef, where you'll spend five hours exploring two incredible reef destinations. Enjoy a tropical BBQ lunch with fish, prawns, steak and salads. Snorkeling and glass-bottom boat coral viewing tours are also included in your reef adventure with up to three optional dives (own expense) available for either the beginner or advanced diver. The day concludes with an amazing 30-minute scenic helicopter flight over five reef systems and cays arriving back in Cairns and finishing off your two day adventure in style.
Had an amazing two days. Visiting the reef with the guys at down under was the highlight and the helicopter flight out was just amazing. Would definitely do it again.
This was a wonderful 2 day tour. We were able to visit the highlights of Cairns plus we spent one day on the Barrier Reef with a helicopter return from the Barrier Reef to Cairns. The helicopter ride allowed us to see a bird's eye view of a larger area of the Barrier Reef. We snorkeled 2 different locations. It was just as beautiful as expected. The tour offered persons without much snorkeling experience the opportunity to have a tour person guide them while holding onto a safety ring. The second day was a trip up to Kuranda - a charming small town in a rain forest, then a visit to an aboriginal cultural center plus a ride over the top of the rainforest. This tour is a perfect 2 day tour when visiting Cairns. It was very well organized and the staff did a great job.
