Took the suggestion of taking the historic train in the morning up the mountain. A lovely ride, with automated historic story played through rail cars. Also Rail employees come around and take your photo's with your camera, for souvenirs!! I meandered through the Kuranda Village, Butterfly sanctuary and Bird world, besides all the markets and shops. Later in the day... More

I really enjoyed the train ride and its history. I feel that they should sell refreshments on board. No one tells you to take anything. The village of Kuranda is quaint and pretty but very overpriced and not worth it. I loved the Kuranda Candy Kitchen. The village has a nice selection of eateries. The staff on the coach and... More

We went on the Kuranda Scenic Rail up to the town of Kuranda and then returned via Skyrail. The train journey was excellent, although they might consider some fans if not A/C in the carriages as it gets very hot

I always stayed overnight in Cairns on my way to/from Port Moresby. But because the flight schedule changed, I had two nights in Cairns. So I joined the Kunanda Train & Skyrail Tour to spend the extra day. It as a very enjoyable trip.

After getting picked up in an air conditioned coach we were dropped at Skyrail. Arrived at Kuranda and explored. Butterfly house disappointing this time due to no Ulyses butterflies. Time to explore the village markets before heading back to Cairns on the train.

We took the train up and the skyrail back and that gave us about 3-4 hours in the village. We elected to go hold a Koala at the Koala Garden and eat at the markets. They have art shops and digeradoos as well as boomerangs everywhere for sale. The Venom Zoo in the village is also super cool. The company... More

They start by picking you up from your hotel at a pre-arranged time a modern a/c equipped bus and take you to the train (in our case. It is possible you can go up by train and back by cable car, I suppose but I'm not sure). The cable car comes in two sorts, one with a glass bottom, if... More

It was a fun filled day. The kids loved it (11years and 14years). The skyrail gives a bird's eye view over the rainforest canopy. There are stops along the way where you can walk and learn about the rainforest from the rangers.
