Ein sehr schöner Tag, den wir jeden...
Stefan
, Nov 2014
Ein sehr schöner Tag, den wir jeden nur empfehlen können! Die An- und Abreise mit dem Bus vom Hotel verlief problemlos. Die Skyrail-Fahrt ist echt ein Erlebnis und sollte jeder gemacht haben. Auch die Rückfahrt mit dem historischen Zug war eine tolle Sache, die man so nicht jeden Tag erlebt. Für uns war die Zeit in Kuranda selbst etwas lang, da das Dorf schon sehr touristisch ist und wir nach einmal durchgehen auch fertig waren. Insgesamt aber ein sehr gelungener und toller Tag.
