Relaxing train ride to kuranda and skyrail back. Not much choice of foodin Kuranda. Skyrail was exciting as we zoomed to and from the platforms.

We really loved doing this, it truly is a wonderful way to experience the rainforest. It may take a long time, most of your day in fact but it is truly a great day out. The views you see are fantastic. At one stage we had to wait a bit for the gondola's but overall a very smooth process. The... More

We packaged the train ride up the mountain with the Classic Kuranda Experience; the Rainforestation Nature Park; an Australian BBQ lunch buffet; an amphibious Army Duck tour of the rainforest; Aboriginal dance, boomerang, spear-throwing demonstrations and cultural experience; a guided tour of the Koala and Wildlife Park; and a mountain descent on the Kuranda Skyrail. Coordination and transportation between attractions... More

My husband and I choose to upgrade to gold class for the train and it was so worth it! We really enjoyed the train and the company of another couple from the UK. We had lunch and did some shopping in Kuranda before going back on the Skyrail. I loved it but my husband is scared of heights so he... More

Very enjoyable. Only did skyrail both ways. Jeremy the Ranger at the first stop was really engaging, knowledgeable and made the day. Was really misty and wet - perfect to gondola over. Kuranda ok for an hour or so stopover. Go hug a koala. Staff on Skyrail really nice and professional.

The tour is bad because, the itinerary is non existent, they do what they want and it is not always what you want. I was with down under tour and give it 2 out of 10. They messed up my booking so i spent wasted time fixing it. They charge much more than if you just do it yourself. No... More

A beautiful skysail tour. We took the rail down from Kuranda above the canopy of the rain forest. We saw the beautiful blue butterflies and enjoyed the two stops along the way. There was a park ranger who took us on a botanical tour in the rain forest. It was quick but wonderful.

Enjoyed first part of the skyrail to Red Head where I took the option to follow a walk trail through the rain forest - very pleasant. Red Head is highest part of the sky rail and the views back over Cairns and the ocean were quite good. From Red Head through the Barron Falls Station and Kuranda the views were... More
