This was a great experience and I highly recommend this attraction to everyone. Having the bus collect us from accomodation means the start of a stress free day. My son loved watching the old train arrive at the station. Even boarding this train is fun....More

Kuranda train and sky rail is busy! Cairns makes it’s living from tourism so most attractions are busy! Choosing small group tours will make it easier, make it part of the experience and enjoy the scenery, seats are allocated; we had preferential seating booked; not...More

My family and I took the Kuranda rail up and the skyrail return tour from Travstar. We really enjoyed the experience and the scenery is just amazing. Travelling in the old styled rail buggy had its own charm and is truly an engineering win! We...More

This was a difficult and overpriced tour in my life. It was super crowded and tiring. All you do is sit and be moved around like cattle. The train and cable cars can only go in one direction, unless you pay more. As well with...More

We did Skyrail up and train down which I think is the most popular combination. Skyrail is one way not to miss.

I would suggest you check for tours to the Daintree Rainforest. It isn't far from Cairns, so you should be able to find one that suits the limited time you will have in the area.
