Immerse yourself in the ancient, World Heritage-listed rain forest of Tropical North Queensland. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Port Douglas hotel and a ride on the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway. During the 1.5-hour journey, wind around mountainous curves and stop briefly at beautiful Barron Gorge for photos.
When you arrive at the station in Kuranda, enjoy several hours of leisure time to spend as you choose. Browse heritage markets and enjoy lunch at a local café (own expense), or select from a variety of optional activities. Join in an indigenous celebration at the Tjupakai Aboriginal Cultural Park, take an amphibious duck tour at the Rainforestation Nature Park or enjoy an up-close observation of some of Australia’s amazing animals at Birdworld and the Kuranda Koala Gardens. (Additional expense. See Itinerary below for a description of each option.)
To return to Port Douglas, glide above the lush canopy on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. From inside a 6-passenger gondola, get a unique perspective of the forest and enjoy views that stretch far out into the Coral Sea. Stop at two different lookouts to capture photos and chat with forest rangers.
Your full-day rainforest adventure concludes with drop-off back at your Port Douglas hotel in the early evening.
