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 .

4 star rating: Recommended April 2016

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.


3 star rating: Worth doing October 2016

This isn't a tour. This is a few pre-bought tickets and a bus between two locations. You are on your own for the day to make your own way through the train, town and nature reserve. That being said, the gondola down the mountain was definitely a highlight for the day.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2016

The train ride was too long with very few photo opportunities. The aboriginal dance could have been shorter with more time to spend in the rain forest.There was no escape from the heat and humidity in the indoor spaces.
