Do the whole thing... up by Rail back by Cable Car after lunch at Kuranda makes for a terrific day, not strenuous apart from a walk up the hill into Kuranda. Lots of eateries and history, views are scenic and the train is a lovely old steam train.

We too the Skyrail up and the Scenic Railway back. Skyrail offers fantastic views and also the opportunity to stop and explore on route. Kuranda is a lovely place with the main street very much catering for tourists. We took the forest walk through the rainforest and river finishing up back at village having lunch at the pub by the...

It is a relaxing day over the rainforest in the skyrail. Really spectacular views. Kuranda was a nice walk up the hill for lunch a look at the venom museum and butterfly sanctuary. The return trip on the train was fantastic. We upgraded to the Gold class carriage. The service was superb and food was great. Everyone enjoyed the day.

Yes, the scenery is good. But Kuranda is mostly a small town full of tourist shops. The activities are overpriced on top of already expensive tickets to ride the skyrail and/or train to visit. Maybe if you've never vsisited a rainforest or if you have days to kill in the Cairns area, otherwise give this a miss.

You can select different options to and from your journey, the train, bus or sky rail. The train ride was enjoyable 1.5hrs, Sky rail ½ hr if you don’t stop at the board walks, views are nice. It’s a senior friendly place to visit. There is food to purchase but very average, there are no fast food outlets. There are... More

We took the Kuranda rail up to the Kuranda Village and then took the sky rail down back to the starting point. It was a an amazing trip up through the forest and was just blown away by the history of it all. The sky rail down is a dramatic experience as you fly down skimming the tree tops of... More
