Skyrail was amazing.. I would have chosen a gold pass for the railway as the time was nearly 2 hours and the seat looked more comfortable for the gold pass passengers.
Wonderful day

Amazing day spent well
Himani_G, Apr 2022
Skyrail was the highlight of this tour and i loved it. Buffet was good too. Railway was a little boring fir us coz we have travelled a lot by rail in childhood but if you are planning for this tour ask for a window seat if possible. Butterfly sanctuary was a waste of time. Instead do a lots of shopping in the village 😀
Nice tour but Viator charged too much
Hanyin_C, Apr 2022
The tour is over priced for at least 15% when you add up all the admission price at each attractions unfortunately I called Viator to discuss about price match after the tour and they told me I’ve passed the 72 hour window.
Not untill you get back to me about not being able to do seawalk helmet dive on green island wich they would let us do
Rhonda_T, Apr 2022
Iv messaged viator twice and have not had a reply I should receive a refund for being told we could not do seawalk having a failed medical no one had said i could not do seawalk for before the date . seawalk helmet dive on green island....

A terrific day out!
Pauline_S, Apr 2022
The railway journey relaxing and pleasant, Kuranda is a nice village, quite touristy… the butterfly sanctuary was very nice. Reforestation was a pleasant surprise, we had a nice time there, and the sky rail journey back down was great, very scenic.

Skyrail is a can't miss item. Rainforestation is also a great experience.
Jonathan_T, Dec 2021
Great trip, lots to do and the Rainforestation was so much better than expected. Sad to see the markets at Kuranda village only half still open. Regardless of how scared you are, do not miss the Skyrail!
Excellent day trip
natalie, Oct 2021
The Army duck tour was informative and interesting. The boomerang throwing was great fun. Excellent to see the value placed on the indigenous history of the area.
Fantastic day out
Nigel_S, Oct 2021
The Kuranda Rail and the Skyrail experiences where top shelf. The Butterfly sanctuary, Wildlife Park and Rainforestation were very good. Experienced and informative guides helped make this day tour a memorable one.
