Loved the trip to Kuranda. It is a beautiful area and we had a great time. We had a bit of rain and fog but it is after all a rain forest. I would really recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour! My only regret is that lightening was detected in the area and the skyway shut down for a period of time preventing us from being transferred to Kuranda. Sadly, we were only allowed to spend 45 minutes there as opposed to a few hours.

It was great experience. Station and Nature park was very attractive. There was also a very good guided tour of the wildlife. We had a chance to explore their culture and played some games. Lunch is a buffet was so delicious and it definitely worth it to include.

Great tour. I would suggest taking the train first and returning via the skyline. My only regret was that once arrived at Kuranda we were a bit rushed to get to our tour bus that we didnt have enough time to truly explore

Loved this tour - one of my favorite while in Australia. There was a ton packed in and the only thing I would have liked is more time in Kuranda. We only had 45 minutes there, which was just enough to walk through, but not enough to spend any time exploring the wine tasting, butterfly gardens, shops, etc. The train was lovely and the skyride was pretty amazing - I'd recommend both. The day is very well-orchestrated and the team does an awesome job of keeping you on schedule without feeling too rushed. Lunch is a buffet worth it - lots to choose from including vegetarian options and it's 20 for a photo with the koalas.

Great experience. The train ride had magnificent views of the area, especially the Barron Falls The Rainforest Station and Nature Park was very entertaining and informative. It gave us a lot of insight to the culture and traditions of the Aboriginal people: There was also a very interesting guided tour of the wildlife area. We were able to hold a Koala and a baby alligator, must do when visiting this area. Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip.

Loved this tour.
The highlight is obviously the cable car over the rainforest and the steam train back down the mountains, but there's so much to do when you get to Kuranda.
Really enjoyed the butterfly sanctuary.

It was breathtaking to be able to experience the train ride going up the mountain and the sky rail going down. Kuranda was good for sightseeing, feeding kangaroos, taking a photo with a Koala, shopping, and learning about the culture.

This tour is highly recommended. The trip through the train was as amazing as when my husband and I went there 15 years before. The Kuranda is beautiful and this time we experienced the full rainforest experience. My family and I enjoyed everything there was to enjoy about this memorable tour. My daughter had a great time holding her new friend Newbie the Koala.

The tour was very well organised with prompt pickups from accommodations. The train was lovely with stops for photographs and a good commentary. Kuranda is an interesting village with plenty of galleries and shops, and places to eat......recommend The Frog for lunch.
The SkyRail was stunning. Definately best to go train and then SkyRail return. Great return to accommodation

This tour was absolutely amazing. We chose the Aboriginal Cultural Center option with the sky way option to Kuranda. We took the train back down to Cairns. It was so much fun, very educational and worth every penny. It was a highlight of our trip.

The Tjapukai park was really interesting, nicely made and even exciting with the many activities we could participate in throwing a spear, a boomerang, singing with the local team. Lunch was very tasty and included traditionally cooked kanguru we saw how it was done I recommend booking it with the tour!

Both the Skyrail and Railway were gorgeous. Beautiful lookouts and really picturesque vessels. The staff running all this was super friendly and helpful as well. I was lucky enough to catch the free little tour a ranger provided along the way, which was super cool.

I wish I had had more time in the Kuranda village itself though. The time I spent on the spontaneous guided walk may have been better spent in Kuranda itself: I hardly had any time left to see the Heritage markets. Talking about this: the Heritage markets are NOT the shops you find right after entering the village. You need to follow the signs to get there. I wish I had known this before checking these shops out: when discovering the actual markets, I needed to head back already. On the other end, there is a Kuranda coffee shop, serving and selling Kuranda coffee in one of those shops. Have a sip, it's fantastic!

Anyway. It was a super packed day with a lot of great sights and insights. Highly recommended!

We did the train ride to kuranda with a shuttle to the rainforestation and returned home on the sky rail. The entire trip was well planned out and very worthwhile. Lots of picture taking opportunities on the train and the sky rail. A little more time in Kuranda would have been nice but our iterary did not allow it. Once we got to the park we had a wildlife tour where you could feed the kangaroos. We were then provided a buffet lunch which was great. You also had an option of paying to get a picture with a koala which our friends did. We had time in the gift store and then had an aboriginal dance show followed by boomerang throwing lessons. It was a full day and a lot of fun. We had a shuttle to and from our hotel.

I really enjoyed this day trip. I took the train up to Kurana and the Skyrail down. Both options provided nice views but I could have ridden the Skyrail back and forth all day. It was like gliding above the rain-forest with a birds eye view of the area and all the way down to the water. Peaceful, beautiful and at roughly 20 min no stops well worth the journey.

Kuranda itself was lots of fund with various activities. Fed and pet Kangaroos and wallaby's, enjoyed a great barbecue lunch, enjoyed indigenous music and dance presentation and participated in boomerang demonstration.

Tour well organized with hotel pickup/drop-off and itinerary that ensured all activities could be completed. I would do this trip again.

This was a great day, starting with the railway ride into Kuranda. Scenery is beautiful and the ride is very relaxing. We enjoyed visiting the village, the great lunch, and the spectacular skyway ride back. One of the nice things was that at the time we went, it was not at all crowded, so plenty of room. We loved the wildlife park. It was small but you could get up close to the animals. All in all, a great day.
