Travelling to Cairns between 18-21st Dec 2018. Should I purchase the train and skyrail tickets in advance? Should I do it through a tour operator only or is there a train website that I can use? Thanks .
I would book in advance and use a tour operator so you get transport from the town to the sky rail station and return from the station if you check out the Viator web site they have a number of options
Your hotel can book it as well,but go up to kauranda by train and down by skyrail then the view down is nicer
Book via website . We were happy going up via Skyrail and back via train. Lovely to spend time in butterfly house and lunch and relax and look around the town. Great day. Need to book transfer back to origin of departure if you left a vehicle there.
If you are limited for time then I would purchase in advance. Don’t do transfers just uber to and from the stations as this will save you time overall (as it’s group transfer you have to pick up from various locations). Just go through trip advisor to book.
My cousin bought the tickets in a cairns travel agents a couple of days before we went and she got them a little bit cheaper than getting them online.
Hello, maybe a tour operator or the accommodation at which you are staying would help. You will need transport to and from your location. I recommend the upgrade to GOLD. Its comfortable; great service, delicious food . Overall , its a wonderful day: we went up by train and down on the sky rail. The village is lovely: time to browse, buy,, eat or just enjoy!
have a great time
Search skyrail in google book online
One way skyrail return via train
Yes definitely book in advance as it does get very busy during holiday periods.
I had no problem in getting tickets near the date I went. Skyrail is brilliant, not so much the train. Initially it is just going through the back near people's houses, but eventually as it goes up, the views are good, especially when it stops for a break - lovely view of waterfall. I got ticket online, but can be bought at station.
