After pickup from your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel, transfer to the railway station to board the Kuranda Scenic Railway. Using your skip-the-tickets, hop straight aboard and take your seats in the comfortable Gold Class carriages. On the 1-hour 45-minute journey, gaze out over the magnificent landscapes of the Barron Gorge National Park, with its dense rainforest, dramatic gorges, and tumbling waterfalls. As you take in the views, sip a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy the tea, coffee, and snacks provided.
On arrival, enjoy free time to browse the shops or purchase lunch in Kuranda village, learn more about the region’s indigenous heritage at the Tjupakai Aboriginal Cultural Park (optional, own expense), or spot kangaroos and koalas in the Rainforestation Nature Park (optional, own expense).
Return to Cairns with a thrilling ride on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, including two stops at viewing stations along the way, where you can enjoy an even closer view of the rainforest, following purpose-built boardwalks.
Back in Cairns, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
