A great day out. This trip proved better than we expected. The coach driver was very well organised, as various people were doing activities in a different order. all the relevant information was made very clear. The train journey is magnificent, very scenic and a sociable ride. There are a variety of activities available in Kuranda, shopping, wildlife, butterflies and river trips and many places to eat. The cable car down provided magnificent views..
great trip well looked after picked up on time very freindly and informative had a great trip very worthwhile. Good prictures and great company
One of best things we did in our three week trip to Australia and New Zealand. Great combination of seeing the rainforest, scenery, shopping, wildlife habitat, and aborigine culture.
Amazing trip but didn't like the Skyrail. Don't do it if you don't like heights!
A great tour and great value. Brilliant views over the rainforest from the cable car.
My wife and I stayed in Port Douglas for nine days. What a great time we had, without doubt this would have to rate as one of the best holidays we have ever had. The accomodation, the food,the town and sight seeing did not give us any time to be sorry we came. During our stay we did three full day excursions one of which was the Kuranda Scenic Railway Day Trip. I booked this online with Viator, It was so easy and prompt. They gave precise details to arrange times and pickup points.
On the day the coach arrived on time and from then on everthing ran like clockwork. We were taken to the Skyrail Station in Cairns, what an experience We were taken over the rainforest to Kuranda then on to the Rainforest Station and Tjapukai where we spent the rest of the day discovering our forest and animals.
We then took the Kurand Railway back to our coach for the trip back to Port Douglas. Unlike other coach tours we have done at no time did we feel rushed off our feet. Although my wife did not have a great deal of time to shop at the Kuranda Markets this was not a problem as we drove back up a few days later.
The tour was very well organised and I thought it was very good value for the money. Well done
Brilliant ! The scenery was breathtaking, the Skyride rates as one of the most exciting experiences I have had. The organisation of the trip was executed with military precision, which helped the day to run smoothly allowing time for me to take full advantage of every minute. A must do for everyone visiting The area.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side the day we did this trip, view from the sky rail because of this was impaired, the so called barbecue was like a feast excellent food.
Breathtaking, especially the sky rail and railway.
The tour guide was excellent.

Excellent day especially enjoyed the Sky Rail over the forest. Lots to do at the Rainforestation Park including an excellent lunch!
This was such a marvellous experience. I didn't expect to have so much included in the day trip. Aboriginee Dancing, cable car ride through the rain forest and wonderful scenic railway trip back down from village of Kuranda. Coped with everything in spite of being disabled. Good value trip!
This was just the best, the staff was informative and smiley the scene was fantastic the market was just great and i loved the town of Kuranda
Good day out, scenic railway has some great scenery and the butterfly, birds and other animals are good fun. Cable car make down is very high but offers amazing views!

The railway and sky rail were fantastic also the Rainforestation Park we visited. Thoroughly enjoyed this worthwhile trip!

A good day with lots of things to see and do. Efficient pickup and drop-off. Friendly helpful driver and guide. Very well organised. The train and Skyrail were stunning journeys. Tjapukai was well structured, with plenty of things to do and see. Perhaps a little too long in Kuranda. It's a fairly interesting place, but you can 'do' it in 1.5 hours. I would recommend doing this tour; it was run by a very reputable company, and I felt that it was a quality event.

Brilliant, and great views. Best to do the one with the train ride first. I paid extra to have GOLD CLASS. Viator doesn't offer this, but I asked when I arrived as I saw it advertised. It may be worth ringing ahead in case it is full. The extras were complimentary drinks--champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks--snacks, and a souvenir pen. Main thing: You had an armchair to sit in, a guaranteed window seat, and room to move from side to side to get the best views.

The train and rail ride is a great way to take in the beautiful scenes, the stop at Kuranda Village had plenty of shops. The Tjapukai Aboriginal Park is a must, great way to learn about the indigenous people of Australia. You also get to learn and actually throw the spear and boomerang.

This was a wonderful "no pressure" trip. We were picked up at our hotel and returned at the end of the day. We did everything on our own time. We also got a chance to talk with Aboriginal people at the Cultural Center, which was enlightening.

The Kuranda Scenic Railway trip is an excellent day out. We caught the train from Cairns to Kuranda and then got the Sky-rail back. A little bit rushed so don't expect to see all the attractions of Kuranda in one day. We saw the Kuranda Birdworld and Kuranda Koala attractions which were both wonderful. The train trip was interesting with many bridges and tunnels to navigate. The Sky Rail was great with the view of the rainforest and waterfalls to enjoy. Not to be missed.
Very enjoyable excursion both the train trip and the cable car the views were spectacular however there was too much time available for the market at the top 4hours which was unnecessary especially in the extreme heat.
Excellent tour. Loved seeing the rainforest. Awesome seeing the Barron Falls.Taking the skyrail up and railway down was fun. Shopping in Kuranda was great. Lots to see. Wish we had more time to shop but it we had a wonderful time.
