We took the all-inclusive option with lunch, which involved quite a large number of diverse activities. We started with the Scenic Railway train ride from Freshwater Station to Kuranda Station. Then a brief visit in Kuranda Village, followed by transport to Kuranda Rainforestation. There we experienced: a guided tour through the zoo area; a Duck land-water excursion through the forest;...

A lovely trip on the biggest skyrail in there world. It offers a birdie view of the tropical rain forrest It stops twice en route so people get a better view of the rain forest and the waterfalls. We were there on a quiet day which was extra nice: no waiting, and a cabin all to ourselves.

The whole tour, especially the Skyrail, was amazing. You have to try it to believe it. Highly recommended.

Kuranda via the Skyrail giving impressive views over the rainforest. We had a walk in the rainforest and looked out over the Barron falls.

First, a word of advice: book your day trip directly through the Skyrail website. Especially if you are staying at a local hotel in Cairns. This will ensure you get on the correct bus for your trip to Kuranda. There will be many tour buses pulling up at your hotel with the words "Skyrail Day Tour," or simply "Skyrail." Only... More

This was an excellent tree top view and journey back down! IMHO better than the train. More spacious and better views.

I did a return trip on the gondola with my partner, the trip up was so amazing and there was so much to look at and watch. We experienced every weather variety on our trip, it was just a great day. I paid extra for the diamond view on the way down, well worth the money. Just imagine sitting above... More

We travelled both ways on the skyrail. It was magnificent. Views amazing and the rocking of the cabin enough to make it fun but not scary.

I really wanted to review: Best of Kuranda Including Skyrail, Kuranda Scenic Railway and Rainforestation but it was not listed in the tours that is shown in the drop down menu for reviews. This is the best tour! It was long..10 hours, including lunch but worth it! The bus picked us up at our hotel and drove to the train... More

Sorry, but a run of shops with cheap kitsch awaits at the top of a lovely cable ride. And on a hot day.....one just keeps looking at your watch wishing the time would pass faster. A cool bar in town, atmospheric with 80's and 90s videos playing and coin pool tables and locals. Run down but frankly that's part of... More
