A fantastic day out - I am not a poet so cannot find the words to convey what I saw or possibly more importantly, felt about what I saw. It was an experience I shall long remember.

Nice scenic railway train ride up to Small touristy village of Kuranda, beautiful sky ride back with 2 picturesque syops. Lovely day, especially for train fans. And Kuranda has a hidden Mimi golf spot for those who enjoy that! Rainforest Mimi golf. Fun day for entire family.

Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Very exciting and informative, do take the stops on the way up in the cable car as they are very interesting. Loved Kuranda, a couple of amazing galleries and a great lunch.

This tour was brilliant from start to finish. Fantastic views from the train going to Kuranda and we had enough time to look around Kuranda and have something to eat and not to rushed before heading to the skyrail for our return journey which was also a really good view despite the rain.

Very enjoyable trip travelling on the train to Kuranda, only downside is the windows have bars, so very hard to take photos while the train is moving understand this is for safety reasons, trip took about one and half hours, need to buy/take food as train has nothing on it, unless you travel Gold Class. Visited Barron Falls on way up, stopped for about 10mins to take photos, falls were flowing but not gushing as we visited in the dry season. Kuranda is a lovely little town with plenty of places for lunch. We took the circuit walk into the jungle and around the river, took us about one and half hours as we stopped and took photos. We then returned on one of the glass bottom sky rail cars, there are only a few of these and you need to pay extra, which can be done up at Kuranda. All in all a very enjoyable day.

This trip was really awesome and most educational . The Visit to the Indigenous Centre was both informative and welcoming . Swinging over the Rain Forest was equally fascinating . In all a most worth while trip .
Many Thanks

This day long excursion was excellent. The Tjapukai Museum offered a variety of programs, then the Skyrail and Kuranda were self-guided, and the final rail trip home was comfortable with excellent narration. It was a great way to see the area and learn about its history, both ancient and more recent.

Wonderful views, with a photo stop at Barron Falls. However, start with the museum at the railway station, so you know what went into building this railway. It was all done by hand - an amazing achievement. Pay attention to the dinner party on the tracks back during its construction. The general population rides on crowded wooden benches facing each other in pairs - not the most comfortable, but it's not a long ride. The handicapped car has real armchairs and its own toilet. If anyone in your party has any claim to being handicapped, opt for this! There is an elevator in Kuranda to take you up to the exit level, but it's kept very secret for some reason. It looks like an ordinary white door. We learned about it, and shared it with some mothers with baby strollers, who were delighted - no one had told them.

The train and train ride were very scenic . The ride coming down just seemed a tad long, but overall a splendid trip.

The Scenic railway was fantastic. A great way to see the beautiful gorge and rainforest.
Kuranda is a very touristy place with not much to do other then shopping, art galleries and animal sanctuary. There was enough time for us to do everything we wanted. everything shuts at 3.30/4pm when the tourists leave
The best part of the tour was the sky rail. Beautiful views.
We would recommend when you switch cable cars mid way that you take a short walk to view Barron Falls and hop back on the next car.
Hotel pick up and drop offs were on time and swift. Our bus was delayed on the way back so they put us on a different bus. Very well organised.

An excellent day out with a range of activities. Great views on the train trip up. Kuranda itself is a little 'touristy' but still enjoyable for a couple of hours or so. Another highlight is the rainforest excursion but the best part is the skyrail trip above the forest canopy. Good value for money and an excellent way to view the countryside in a leisurely manner!

The tour was great - bus driver was very funny on the ride home. Enjoyed the free time to walk around and tour at my pace. The only thing I did not think was great was the lunch provided at the Aboriginal center. Not enough people to have the buffet that was listed and only had 15 minutes to eat. Activities were wonderful.
