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.
Really spectacular. I had never been on a train ride that was so thrilling, and so spectacular. The people in the village of Kuranda was very friendly and accomidating.
We had a very nice day in Kuranda even though the railway had suffered a mud slide so we could not use it. We used the tram both ways. Thoroughly enjoyed the Kuranda activities and the time allowed as almost perfect. Good lunch too!
A very scenic train trip, well worth doing - bus pickup was on time and very helpful and informative. Plenty to do in Kuranda - the birds and venom zoo a must see too. Very beautiful train back to Cairns, and Barron Falls in full fall was a treat. Highly recommended tour.
A great day tour that includes excellent scenery, Australia cultural history and well paced.
The scenery is spectacular and the staff is extremely polite, friendly, and helpful. The hotel pickup was a plus and the lunch at the Rainforest Park was very tasty.
Well organised very enjoyable day. The visit to the Aboriginal Cultural Centre was a highlight.
We enjoyed the trip, but it was very tiring as we have difficulties walking very far. The staff were great on the buses and the train and the shopkeepers we dealt with were also very good and extremely helpful to us.
