We went on the Kuranda railway trip which was a great journey with amazing views of some great waterfalls and ravines. Then returned by the Sky Rail which is awesome, this carries you over the top canopy of the rainforest a brilliant ride.

We first took the Aerial Tramway with its breathtaking views up with Kuranda and then a wander around Kuranda with its little stores, art galleries, cafes etc. Did not visit any of the attractions at Kuranda as not enough time. Returned on the Kuranda Train which afforded different views of the rainforest. Would highly recommend this trip.

We were shown a short film to start followed by demonstrations of aboriginal tools, weapons, and musical instruments (including of course the didgeridoo) and then some lively and entertaining performances from the Tjapukai dance troupe. We then we given guidance on how... More

Did this tour with my husband and 9 month old, drivers were extremely professional and lovely (thank you Steve and Heath!) and the sights at the Daintree Forrest were breathtaking. Negatives would have had to be the weather, which I know cannot be helped given we are in northern QLD however it was simply just too hot to thoroughly enjoy... More

A peaceful, beautiful and fun way to spend your day going up on the sky rail from Cairns to Kuranda. There are 2 lookouts that you can do along the way to get to your final destination. I recommend doing both of them during the day. The crew that work on the sky rail are so happy and really, really... More

What a great tour - we took the cable car up to Kuranda, enjoyed a relaxing boat ride with a really knowledgeable "captain" and got the train back. The rainforest is beautiful and extensive and the village is adorable. Filled with restaurants, bars, great little boutiques even a Butterfly paradise and an enclosure for some of their treasured "critters -... More
