We paid for the gold class service and we’ll worth it. The train car had comfortable arm chairs and took me back in time, with the beautiful wood and tin ceiling. This class had 2 staff who served muffins, goodies and beverages through out the trip, and added to the commentary that was on the speakers by telling us ahead of time to get ready for scenic areas to take pictures. The 1 1/2 hour ride was through a beautiful area of the rainforest and was very enjoyable. Both stations were picturesque also. Very friendly staff. Delightful trip.

Awesome. Have done train up and sky rail back and also vice versa, recommend train up and skyrail back, heightened the anticipation for cruising above the canopy

We agree, a must do! It's a great combination of travelling through the rainforest and above it :)

Highly recommended for adults but found it to be a little too long for young kids especially after walking around Kuranda for a few hours, we got more than a few moans and groans asking how much longer. Although saying that the staff in board were very helpful and sought families out to offer their own seating areas. Amazing scenery to look at on your way down though, needs to be seen to be believed. A must if staying in the area.

Caught the train from Kuranda back to Cairns in gold class. Firstly the little station at Kuranda is wonderful. It’s so quaint, spotlessly clean and picturesque- so allow time for photos as it’s worth it. The train itself was really special - lovely old carriages with character. Gold class was a very comfortable experience, individual arm chair style seating, unlimited drinks and a cheese platter. Some lovely vantage points from the train, waterfalls, gorges, views and some amazing bends in the track that enabled you to see the rest of the carriages enroute. Definitely worth doing

The heritage train line was overrated - it was interesting to some extent being on historic line overlooking amazing scenery.

The experience was the cable line with tree top views and not the railway.

Thank you for sharing your feedback - we're sorry to learn the journey didn't live up to your expectations... we'll try not to take it personally! We hope, despite the fact Skyrail was your preferred mode, you enjoyed sitting in our vintage refurbished carriages - which are 100 years old - or learning the history of the railway in the onboard commentary.
