This was pretty much a full day's outing...and well worth it. Prepare to step back in to time, The narration and the twisting turning on the Scenic Railway sets the stage. The duck boats place you into the experience of the rain forest. And to hold a cuddly Koala and/or pitch a boomerang is rather special in itself. And then there is the return to the outside world by gliding over the top of the forest which leaves one with the knowledge you have been treated to something unique.

This was a great day tour! I loved how much was included and how you were able to see the rain forest, the marketplace and of course, the animals. The koalas and kangaroos were definitely a highlight, as was the wonderful Skyrail ride down the mountain. The views were breathtaking and it was amazing to see the rain forest from that viewpoint, after having just been in it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns as it's not too far from the beach cities but gives a totally different perspective and experience.

Excellent Skyrail Cableway trip up to Kuranda in the morning,
but return trip via Scenic railway the afternoon was very hot
and the views not so good if you are sat at the aisle end of the seats.

Also felt the Rainforest trip intinerary was a bit cramped and rushed,
would have like to have spent more time viewing the animals.

Great day if you have limited time and want to see as much as possible. If you're looking for a more natural wildlife and native experience, this is not the trip. The views from the train and skyrail are remarkable. But the rest is a bit touristy.

This tour was disappointing. The ride up on the skyrail is exciting, but you are not given enough time at all in Kuranda to do anything. They have wildlife encounters, a butterfly sanctuary, shops, eateries, and pathways. They only allow, on the tour, about 40 minutes in Kuranda. The advertisement stated all of those features but it was disingenuous because you actually don't have time to do any of it. We did not do the Rainforestation portion because we wanted to stay in Kuranda a bit longer than 40 minutes. It should be broken up into 2 tours because it is too rushed.
