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 must when in Cairns. Scenic railway was great. staff was wonderful. Love the village. sky rail was fantastic and I'm afraid of height. My husband loved it, took thousands of photos.
The most amazing day, very organised - thank you to all. An absolute must do.
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 .
The Railway and Skyrail were the major highlights of this trip the scenery was spectacular! We also enjoyed the Butterfly Sanctuary. Overall it was a very enjoyable day and our tour guide/bus driver was very competent and friendly.
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.
We usually love rail trips but not this one, tour was clearly over booked train was packed, bench seats for 4 on right side of train if your not in window seat or 2nd seat in, you see nothing, you can hardly lean over 3 other people for a look and if you are in the front bench seat against the wood panelling you see even less, total expensive dissapointment. Kuranda is nice tourist spot with lots of shops and stalls selling all sorts of stuff. Butterfly house was quite impressive. We did not get much time to look at Kuranda, all was a rush had to get on bus to rainforestation. Here was a quick look at some animals ok, on to indigenous display which was very good then come on hurry up this way to army ducks. Bit of a joke here they were trying to push that many people through, the poor driver giving the usual informative talk about the forest was a bit pointless really ,we had these ducks including ours all nearly touching so the chinese translation on board some vehicles was drowning everything out. Absolute circus, poorly run tour. Finally Skyrail it was awesome the view, everything about it, Forget the train do skyrail up and back or hire a car to get to Kuranda and do it on your own, we should have, just thought tour would be simple.
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.
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.
