Caught the Skyrail up and back - spent some time wandering around Karanda and doing some souvenir shopping. The views are absolutely amazing - well worth the $$$! Stopped at the different stops on the way back and viewed the falls and more of the rainforest - great day for the whole family!

A great activity for beautiful views of the Barron falls and river. Lovely to be looking down onto the rainforest but buzzing with tourists and ques. Upside was that we didn't book ahead, just rocked up ( we had a car so did not go on the coach) and could get a ticket for the next skyrail and train. Coming... More

This was a lot of fun riding the sky rail over the tree tops, kids loved it and the view were amazing. We did do the train ride back into town, this was fun but it was hot and humid, if we were to do this again would do train ride in the morning as it cooler

Fantastic views and seeing the rain forest from above, Barron falls was in full swing unusual seeing such brown water, great photos taken! Kuranda was lovely definitely a must visit, weather was extremely humid but that is what you get in the wet season in the tropics. Enjoyed our day and then the train trip back to Cairns fantastic!

This was the best tour so far - skyrail up through the rainforest - stopping in 2 places for rainforest walks - free leisure time walking through Kuranda Village lunch/snacks/ drinks etc... Train back down takes 90 minutes but views all the way past Barron Falls and dense rainforest

WOW what a fantastic day trip. If you want to see the rain forest this is the way to do it. It's a definite must. The train took you up through the forest and was very informative. The Karunda village had many great shops,bars and eateries. The sky rail is not for the faint hearted but we loved it. What... More

We decided to upgrade the train ride to Gold Class (yay), So this included welcome drinks on arrival, more drinks and treats (muffin, spring roll, tea/coffee, desert etc) on the way up. Unsure if it was worth the extra, but the family were chuffed and it was Christmas time so we indulged. Train experience was great (well done QR!). Kuranda... More

We enjoyed both the sky rail to go to Kuranda and the train to come back. While the diamond class for the sky rail (glass floor on the cabin) wan not a big added value, we strongly recommend coming back to Cairns with the gold class ticket for the train. You get a perfect old times atmosphere with food and... More

Sky rail - wow it's high! Spectacular views: check before you go whether you can handle heights! Husband and eldest daughter were very uncomfortable and were frightened of the height: however everyone else thought the rail was amazing.
