One of best things we did in our three week trip to Australia and New Zealand. Great combination of seeing the rainforest, scenery, shopping, wildlife habitat, and aborigine culture.

Amazing trip but didn't like the Skyrail. Don't do it if you don't like heights!

My wife and I stayed in Port Douglas for nine days. What a great time we had, without doubt this would have to rate as one of the best holidays we have ever had. The accomodation, the food,the town and sight seeing did not give us any time to be sorry we came. During our stay we did three full day excursions one of which was the Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip. I booked this online with Viator, It was so easy and prompt. They gave precise details to arrange times and pickup points.
On the day the coach arrived on time and from then on everthing ran like clockwork. We were taken to the Skyrail Station in Cairns, what an experience We were taken over the rainforest to Kuranda then on to the Rainforest Station and Tjapukai where we spent the rest of the day discovering our forest and animals.
We then took the Kurand Railway back to our coach for the trip back to Port Douglas. Unlike other coach tours we have done at no time did we feel rushed off our feet. Although my wife did not have a great deal of time to shop at the Kuranda Markets this was not a problem as we drove back up a few days later.
The tour was very well organised and I thought it was very good value for the money. Well done

Brilliant ! The scenery was breathtaking, the Skyride rates as one of the most exciting experiences I have had. The organisation of the trip was executed with military precision, which helped the day to run smoothly allowing time for me to take full advantage of every minute. A must do for everyone visiting The area.

Unfortunately the weather was not on our side the day we did this trip, view from the sky rail because of this was impaired, the so called barbecue was like a feast excellent food.

This was such a marvellous experience. I didn't expect to have so much included in the day trip. Aboriginee Dancing, cable car ride through the rain forest and wonderful scenic railway trip back down from village of Kuranda. Coped with everything in spite of being disabled. Good value trip!

Good day out, scenic railway has some great scenery and the butterfly, birds and other animals are good fun. Cable car make down is very high but offers amazing views!

Wonderfully organised trip as different choices as to what you want to do on trip. Guide relly informative on route - stopped at scenic points including trres full of fruit bats! The railway and sky rail were fantastic also the Rainforestation Park we visited. Thoroughly enjoyed this worthwhile trip!

A good day with lots of things to see and do. Efficient pickup and drop-off. Friendly helpful driver and guide. Very well organised. The train and Skyrail were stunning journeys. Tjapukai was well structured, with plenty of things to do and see. Perhaps a little too long in Kuranda. It's a fairly interesting place, but you can 'do' it in 1.5 hours. I would recommend doing this tour; it was run by a very reputable company, and I felt that it was a quality event.

Brilliant, and great views. Best to do the one with the train ride first. I paid extra to have GOLD CLASS. Viator doesn't offer this, but I asked when I arrived as I saw it advertised. It may be worth ringing ahead in case it is full. The extras were complimentary drinks--champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks--snacks, and a souvenir pen. Main thing: You had an armchair to sit in, a guaranteed window seat, and room to move from side to side to get the best views.

The train and rail ride is a great way to take in the beautiful scenes, the stop at Kuranda Village had plenty of shops. The Tjapukai Aboriginal Park is a must, great way to learn about the indigenous people of Australia. You also get to learn and actually throw the spear and boomerang.

This was a wonderful "no pressure" trip. We were picked up at our hotel and returned at the end of the day. We did everything on our own time. We also got a chance to talk with Aboriginal people at the Cultural Center, which was enlightening.

Very enjoyable excursion both the train trip and the cable car the views were spectacular however there was too much time available for the market at the top 4hours which was unnecessary especially in the extreme heat.

Both the train and cable car rides were very good. Personally I did not think there was that many interesting things to do or see once you got to Kuranda. On the cable car ride down be sure to get out at the stops and have a look around.

This day trip was fab. After being picked up we were firstly up in the gondolas high above the forest, felt very priviledged. Walking through the village then to the 'duck' was great, knowledgable guide,then the very good buffet lunch.Welcoming guide directed us to everywhere, Koalas, Maori presentation through dance etc and then we had a go at throwing the boomerang! Returned by scenic railway (lovely station) back down to reality! Highlight, the gondola.
