What people are saying about Far North Queensland

Very informative

The morning and lunch were definitely worth the price of admission. The afternoon - the Bush Walk and painting - were less satifying. If I had it to do over again, I would do the morning session through the lunch, then go on to the SkyRail. Kuranda Village was not at all interesting to us...

The reason for my booking is to learn about the arborigene way of life, traditions and more. I did learn a lot. it is another way to discover that reality and it is different from a Museum.

Exciting trip

Got with me a bit of many different sights. Interesting history, knowledgeable guides, wonderful rainforest and fantastic lunch!
