After your pickup from Yorkey's Knob Marina, Cairns Cruiseship Terminal or your hotel in Cairns or Northern Beaches, head towards the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway terminal at Smithfield where you will begin your memorable journey up the Kuranda Range taking in the spectacular views over Cairns' northern beaches and our World Heritage Rainforest.
There are two stops on your journey for you to enjoy the rainforest and wildlife as well as get a birds eye view over Barron Falls. Your local guide will be at the skyrail terminal in Kuranda to transfer you the short distance to Kuranda Village where you can have a leisurely wander around the markets and shops. Next, enjoy lunch with coffee or tea at the award winning Frog's Restaurant in Kuranda.
After lunch we will travel down the Kuranda Range to Cairns Aquarium, proudly displaying ten amazing North Queensland ecosystems from the world’s most ancient rainforest to the world’s largest coral reef to discover 70 different exhibits showcasing the rare and incredibly unique species of this region. Endangered Freshwater Sawfish, Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks and Humphead Maori Wrasse dominate the massive freshwater and marine habitats, while Amethystine Pythons and Emerald Tree Monitors make a spectacle of themselves in their terrestrial displays. Enjoy presentations at Australia’s only Deep Reef Tank and Queensland’s largest Oceanarium.
Finally you will be transferred back to the cruise ship or hotel.
