Ride the Skyrail up to Kuranda and relax with snacks and drinks in Gold Class when you return on the Kuranda Scenic Railway.
A great experience with running commentary which was interesting. Disappointed we did not get our souvenirs as promised at the end of the train ride. Kuranda village was interesting and we would have liked more time there. 2 hours up on the train did not give us enough time to go to all the animal parks, eat AND look in the shops. The trip back in the cable car was awesome!
Really fun trip. We enjoyed the train ride which was able to provide history and commentary for the trip. Gold class provided a lot of value for the refreshments and snacks provided. The village is definitely touristy, but I got to hug a koala so I consider it a success. The cablecar/skyrail down was really fun but if you're afraid of heights, you'd definitely want to try and find an alternative. It's not a direct trip down, there are 2 stops along the way where you need to transfer to another car down, so any delay at those changes might mean you're stuck in your cable car suspended over significant heights for a bit. But definitely worth it for a change of pace!
For the first time visit, it defintely was a must-go activity. Also, I wond highly recommond the gold class. The only inconvience was on the transportation. It took quite some time to pick up all the people. And we gave up the free transportation back to the hotel since it requested us to wait for around an hour.
train first class was great good service sky rail was good but if you don,t heights go back by train
This trip was amazing. We decided to go Gold Class, as it is probably our first and last opportunity to do the trip. The ladies who looked after us and served us yummy refreshments were lovely - friendly, and couldn't do enough for us.
The views on the way are wonderful.
We could only be amazed at the workers who built the line back in the 1800s, and at the tunnels, bridges etc that were necessary in such difficult terrain.
Gold class was the way to go, cute town lots to do, recommend the german eatery.
Excellent, and well organized. Had no problems with any part of the trip. Would have enjoyed more time in Kuranda but I know that scheduling is somewhat up to the train and skyrail and not so much the tour.
This is a great tour. Definitely worth doing gold class on train. Pick up for Palm Cove needs to be corrected. Construction occurring and name of pick up location different than on print out. Short drive to site. Fun gift shop. Great train ride. Lovely shops, some touristy, but fun. Great jewelry shop. Do not do the Koala encounter there unless this is your only stop in Australia. Much better places. Sky lift down was incredible over rainforest. Definitely recommend.
Awesome experience, we booked gold which lived up to our expectations. The standard of service and food and drink on the train were fantastic and complimented the whole journey, it also meant we didn't waste time in the village looking for something to eat and were able to explore.
