Up on the train and back on the cableway was the best way to do this tour. You must do the Rainforest walk when you arrive in Kuranda - starts near the Heritage Markets.

This is the way to get the best of both worlds; the train and skyrail. Would highly recommend hotel pickup as allows you to get a train up to Kuranda and then the skyrail back. You have more than enough time in Kuranda with this option. The skyrail is a truly unforgettable experience.

One of our best days during our trip. What an experience and we were treated to a new glass floor in the cable car, 'BRILLIANT'. I would recommend anyone to visit the Culture Village and take a great ride on the cable car returning on the train.

The aboriginal cultural centre was great fun - lots of audience participation - boomergang throwing etc. The views from the cablecar were stunning but the highlight was the scenic railway - an amazing feat of engineering. There was a mix up about the tickets being issues but it was remedied by the time the pick up bus arrived at the start of the tour. The town was alright if yu like shopping for souvenirs but to my mind was the least interesting part of the trip.

Everyone should take this trip, even my wife who doesn't like heights enjoyed it. Orginization was excellent, lots to see and do. The train ride back was also good.

Facinating rail journey, good views across the valley. Cable car above tree canopy gave spectacular views. Plenty of oppurtunity to get close to kangaroos and koalas. Army Duck ride was good fun.

A really fascinating day. Great staff and very slick timing. Everything worked out well, and both the train and the sky cableway were brilliant. We also liked the crocs/ koalas and jumpy things.

The train ride was the first I had experienced since a kid, it was something to see the sights, then to experience the tram was a great way to end the day

The description on the web could have been more detailed. It did include lunch, which I was not aware of. The lunch was great and it was a really fun day!

You get a real feel for the hard work which built the railway. Also, the Skyrail is breathtaking.

We took the scenic railway up with a couple of stops on the way to take photographs. We went into the wildlife bit which was very small but the lady who showed us around was very knowledgable. We had a buffet lunch which had lots of options. Then we went on the army duck which was extremely interesting. Tina our driver/guide was excellent and showed us some flora and fauna and some local wildlife. The aboriginal display was good. We didn't try the spear or boomerang throwing instead we went and held a baby crocodile and got to speak to the keepers for ten minutes, who were more than happy to answer all of our questions. We then went in the skyrail, again with a couple of stops on the way down to take even more photographs. It was a long day but very enjoyable.

It was a good experience. I thought that in between arriving in Kurunda and having to leave there was not enough time to experience much. In between wanting to eat lunch, shop the markets we were unable to try any of the wildlife sanctuaries that we were hoping to get to. That just felt unfortunate because we were only there for that one day and unable to return later on in the week.

I enjoyed myself on this trip but Cairns has a million tours and tour companies and enjoyed myself more on a non viator tour.

i prefer skyrail to train.But by train , could see Baron fall better. Would also recommend to take Tjapuki cultural tour and the recommended schedule for shows in that cultural park is efficient . Wish we could spend more time at heritage market. It would be better if we could leave for Cairns from skyrail station later than 5 pm.
