Very good tour would definitely recommend this tour if you are going to cairns. Lots to do at Kuranda even if you don't go to the rain forestation park.
The whole family took this tour, Mum, Dad, two teens and our toddler. We caught the rail up, spent the time looking through the local market and shops. Stop off for a lovely lunch and caught the rail back. The day was lovely and the locals are extremely friendly. It is rather old and not quite as modern as I thought it would be but that seemed to add to the ambience of the area even more. It was relaxing and because we didn't have to drive anywhere (our coach picked us up from the train station and returned us to our holiday unit) - we manage a bottle of wine over lunch!! How good is that. Great day out for all, I bought jewellery, the teens got some funky bracelets/anklets, baby got to see the dinosaur and got some toys and Dad squeezed in a massage. Everything is there from good food to tarot cards....how cool!!
I highly recommend this for a day out for the family as it seems to be just long enough to keep the kids amused.
Excellent organisation,explanations, super friendly staff at all points of the journey.
Scenic Rail trip on way up to Kuranda, interesting and well worth doing.the village was easy to get around with lots to see.The sky train back over the Rain forest canopy was some thing i had wanted to do since 1st hearing about it and it lived up to every expectation. Well done
Upgraded to gold class and loved every minute of it. The train up was relaxing and very enjoyable. The rest of the tour was just as great.
Fantastic Day trip! The Falls are BEAUTIFUL. Kuranda is full of wonderful things to do, see and eat! And the Skyrail is a MUST DO! It was just the best experiance :)
wonderful trip for anyone of any age. good staff and lots of information
Wish we could spend a little more time in Kuranda for the exhibits and shops. Otherwise terrific!
Excellent trip, well worth it. Easy hotel pick up, could have been a bit more clear on the "return to the hotel" part, but still was easy enough. Overall, good organization, full of info, beautiful scenery.
Excellent, interesting history, makes an appreciation of the journey. Great scenery, a Cairns 'must do' You haven't lived if you haven't done it. Liked Kuranda a lot.
This was one of several tours on a 29 day Australia, South Pacific Islands and Hawaiian vacation -- this tour was, by far, the most enjoyable!
had a great day the time at kuranda was a bit long but the train trip was every thing i expected it was wonderful
This was a 5 star excursion ....we upgraded to gold class and it was wonderful! The mountains and rainforest were so very beautiful with waterfalls and tunnels along the way. Would do this one again!
Nice trip - too bad for the monsoon that got us soaked and delayed our return. But that is the weather to the rain forest during wet season
The Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip was superb in every way. It one of our favorite trips of our 24-day visit to Australia / New Zealand. The people at all of the stations were very congenial and helpful.
Extremely well organised which allowed us to relax and enjoy the day. The scenic railway and skyrail are both stunning. The butterfly house was great and we really enjoyed our day at the rainforestation, especially the duck tour. We'd have liked a bit longer in Kuranda as it is an interesting little place but overall this was a fabulous day.
An excellent trip. The combination of mountain railway, cable sky rail above the tropical rainforest and then the Aboriginal Centre is probably unique in the world.
This was a great trip. Thought that it was much better to go up by train and back down by sky rail had heard that the train trip down was noisy because of the brakes. Enjoyed the markets and the Butterfly Sanctuary.
DO the skyrail first so you can relax on the train on the way back! Great trip!
Very well run tour. Everything was on time and enjoyable. The scenery was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour.
