so worth doing this trip. We chose the tour of being picked up from the hotel and going by train first and returning by sky rail. We really enjoyed the old train and the driver was very informative. Be ready to take plenty of photos. We went around Kuranda by ourselves plenty of things to see and great options for food. Only complaint was we were told to be on the sky rail at 1.45pm so there are 2 stops on the sky rail coming down that we didn’t stop at as we assumed that we would miss our transfer back to the hotel. We were at the bottom for at least 45 minutes and that was upsetting as we could have got of and had a look around but all in all it’s so beautiful and I would love to see it again
Great day at Kuranda Village, I enjoyed the train ride, felt like being back in time, with great views and Barron Falls was impressive! The Skyrail got cancelled due to weather, but received a quick refund and the transfer back, all efficiently handled. Got to feed the tropical birds at Birdworld (really fun) and see a Southern Cassowary (which I was longing to find somewhere as I don't drive) and saw the beautiful butterflies at the Butterfly Sanctuary. Memorable day getting to see everything I wished for :)
This was a wonderful day out. We where picked up on time by Wayne. He was so friendly and gave us an informative talk on the way. The train ride up and cable car back was really great. Make sure you get of at the stations x2 on the cable car. Very short stroll to a fantastic look out. We went on a Sunday and most shops where open with lovely food and wares at great prices. Then Wayne bought us back to the hotel. Wonderful day out.
All the personel were fantastic. The 2 bus drivers (rather guides - Adrian and Adrian) were funny, entertaining, professional. They made every second of the time spent together a joy. Reece, the rainforest guide, is an amazing guy. He knows everything about the forest and the way he presents it is fabolous...
This was probably the most touristy thing we did while in Cairns/Port Douglas. Everything was extremely organised and explained clearly to us. Jun was extremely friendly. We loved his commentary on Cairns and the Great Diving Range as we drove through Cairns to pick everyone else up at their hotels.
