Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pickup from your hotel in Cairns, board the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for Kuranda. It's a spectacular aerial ride above the treetop canopy, with two optional stops to enjoy a guided walk through the rainforest or visit the CSIRO Interpretive Centre.

    On arrival at your destination you'll have free time to do as much or as little as you like; perhaps shop in Kuranda's Heritage Markets, or grab a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants or cafes (own expense). Upgrade your experience to include a visit to Rainforestation Nature Park, or gain entry to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park (included buffet lunch here is optional). 

    If you'd like, enjoy a wildlife encounter at Birdworld, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary or Kuranda Koala Gardens (additional cost; payable direct).

    Finish your day trip with a scenic rainforest journey aboard the Kuranda Scenic Railway back to Cairns, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel. Alternatively, you can travel 1-way to Kuranda by railway and return to Cairns by skyrail.

    Absolutely incredible experience. Would highly recommend this trip. To be above the canopy in the Australian rainforest just takes your breath away

    We took the sky rail up and back as we didn't want to spend all that time on the train. Was very happy to see that you didn't have to share the ride with others. Stopped at both stops to check the view and so glad we did Spent quite a bit of time at Kuranda at the 3 different

    I loved both the train and the sky rail (although the sky rail is a little nerve racking being up so high). The view from both is so amazing that photos cannot do it justice. The activities in Kuranda are super fun, but Kuranda is super humid and feels a little damp. A must see

    Hi Kayla G, Thank you for your review – we are so glad to hear you had a great day visiting Kuranda via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Kuranda Scenic Railway! It is an amazing rainforest experience and the views are spectacular! We definitely recommend to take the complimentary scheduled ranger-guided boardwalk tour at Red Peak Station as you did - it is definitely worth it to learn so much more about the intricacies of this tropical eco-system. Thank you again, and we hope that you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday! Safe travels The DUT Team #downundertours
