This was a great day trip. Our guide was informative and engaging. The train ride up was spectacular, we got to hold our first Koala, fed the kangaroos, rode in a duck, threw a boomerang, and got to watch various Aboriginal dances. We topped off the day by flying over the rainforest canopy on the Skyrail. It was a great first day trip and really set the tone for a great vacation.

This was our 2nd visit to Kuranda.This time we did the army duck which was great fun, although it rained heavily adding to the fun. We also went around the butterfly sanctuary. Unfortunately the weather was wet and misty on our trip down on the skyrail but still a great experience

We had a fantastic time. Would highly recommend this tour. We were looked after from the bus pick up in the morning to the drop off in the afternoon. Very impressed.

From start to finish this was a great day out.
It was very well organised, pick up from our rental apartment, and all of the activities included in the day were first class.
The lunchtime buffet was very slick with plenty of choice, all freshly cooked and tasty.
Would highly recommend this excursion.
Thanks for a fantastic day with some great memories.

A full day of seeing Australian animals and culture. Without much time we were able to see so much unique to Australia. And, the ride back in the gondola was wonderful .

We were shuttled around a bit like livestock but the experience was very interesting. The history of the region as well as the beauty is well highlighted. I would recommend the tour if you find yourself in or near Cains.

Weather could have been better but this was a great day with plenty to see and do. Enough on your own time to poke about a bit. Butterflies were interesting. Added on koala cuddle was my wife's favorite. Train ride down is long but worthwhile as the narrated history was excellent. Cultural shows and wildlife exhibits were also well done. This tour helps get a lot seen in one day if you are trying to pack as much as you can over a few days.
