Great day at Kuranda Village, I enjoyed the train ride, felt like being back in time, with great views and Barron Falls was impressive! The Skyrail got cancelled due to weather, but received a quick refund and the transfer back, all efficiently handled. Got to feed the tropical birds at Birdworld (really fun) and see a Southern Cassowary (which I was longing to find somewhere as I don't drive) and saw the beautiful butterflies at the Butterfly Sanctuary. Memorable day getting to see everything I wished for :)

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!

All the personel were fantastic. The 2 bus drivers (rather guides - Adrian and Adrian) were funny, entertaining, professional. They made every second of the time spent together a joy. Reece, the rainforest guide, is an amazing guy. He knows everything about the forest and the way he presents it is fabolous...

Very pleasant day both on the train and in Kuranda Village. I was confused about not having a ticket for the sky gondola as the title suggested, which is extra. I also felt rushed and could have spent more time exploring the rain forest walk.

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.
