WHAT TO EXPECT
In the morning, a driver will collect you from your hotel, check you into the tour, and issue you with a Kuranda Boarding Pass. This includes a detailed itinerary with timings, as well as your Kuranda Scenic Rail and Skyrail tickets, allowing you to proceed straight to the boarding area. Your day begins with the famous Kuranda Scenic Rail journey to Kuranda. Once aboard, enjoy this historical journey to Kuranda, enjoying breathtaking views across the cane fields of Cairns, to the tropical rainforest of Kuranda.
There are two stops along the way to disembark and explore. Once you arrive in Kuranda, you'll have time to explore this unique village. The Heritage Markets operate 7 days a week and are full of colourful and interesting arts and crafts. While at this stop, you might also like to visit Birdworld, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, or Kuranda Koala Gardens [at your own expense]. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to purchase food. You can also use the discounted entry on your Kuranda Boarding Pass for some of the popular attractions!
At the scheduled time, make your way directly to the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway boarding line – there is no need to queue as your tickets are already on your Boarding Pass. Once aboard, be amazed as you journey over and through World Heritage protected Rainforest. Your Boarding Pass is your ticket for this iconic rainforest experience that includes time at both Red Peak and Barron Falls stations, both with spectacular lookouts. Or visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are offered throughout the day at Red Peak Station. After arriving at the Smithfield Skyrail, make yourself known to the tour's hostess who will direct you to your coach for the transfer to your accommodation.
