Cairns: Self-Guided Kuranda Day Trip, Scenic Rail & Skyrail
- Transportation included
- Duration: 7 hours
We started the day with a history lesson of the passing areas on our way into cairns. So very knowledgeable! The sky rail was very interesting and for 40Aud each well worth it to get to Kuranda. The scenic railway from Kuranda back down the mountains is absolutely spectacular with some amazing views. The town of Kuranda itself has been some what effected from COVID but no doubt it will bounce back. Recommend having a quick look at the butterfly sanctuary while your there too!
Good day out with great views Kuranda village is a lovely place to shops eat & drink The train ride back was interesting and amazing how they worked on the tunnels making all this years ago for us all to enjoy
I prefer to travel up the moutain via train rather than down, it seemed a lot slower going down. Karunda is a lovely quaint town with lots of small shops and Markets.
There was a power cut at the second stop on the gondola on the way up so we missed any times had at Kuranda as we had booked the 2pm train back to Freshwater.
It was fabulous. The scenery was even better than expected. Kuranda was lovely too.... the only downside was the heat and humidity. Great experience though.
