Worth visiting, especially if you go by car and have enough time to hike the Kuranda loop (~3 hrs). The skyrail only gives you a few hours, just for a lunch and a stroll. The village is a commercial enterprise, a shopping-eating destination for daily visitors from Cairns; hippies are mostly gone, with a few notable exceptions. When tourists arrive in the late morning the shops open and the place feels normal; after the last train (3:30 PM) it becomes a ghost town. The las bus out is at 4:10 PM, after that - nothing. Lots of birds, look for the australasian figbird.

A great way to appreciate this national park is on the Sky Rail as you glide over the treetop canopy.

Very family friendly. We took the train up the mountain and the Sky Rail down. Lots of history about the area. Plenty to see.

A visit to Kuranda is a must during any stay at Cairns or Port Douglas. The scenic rail, bird or butterfly parks, Barron Gorge & Falls during wet season, lookouts, and twisty mountain roads.

Its a great day out

This area is great with so many trees, lots of bird life and scenic views. The tree canopy is very dense and includes many very old trees. Lots to explore and enjoy throughout this national park.

It was actually quite interesting to go by train one way and the sky rail the next it gave you two very different aspects it. Sky Rail gives you the opportunity of getting off at a couple of stops to have a look around but we thought we were going to be late for our pick up so we didn't take advantage of it which was a bit of a shame

Soaring over the rainforest is breathtaking. 100 words to make this post valid is insignificant...all I can say is "wow".

Travelling in by car is a long, looping road so most folk park (or get hotel shuttle to) the Skyrail carpark and either taken train or Skyrail there and/or back. Pricier of course but an interesting trip both ways. The Skyrail app is worth downloading. All the village shops and activiites (koalas, bird & butterfly sanctuaries) are all within easy walking distance or there's a shuttle bus that comes regularly. Lots of shops and market stalls, and some great indigenous arts and co-operative artisan shops. On the Skyrail trip, we stopped half-way at Red Peak station to walk through some (the only?) bit of Australia's original rainforest with cycads and basket ferns and orchids. Take a 10 minute free tour with one of the guides ... look for this fellow in the photo .. he's awesome.

the native tree's grow very big and the differant plants and colours are awesome. A must for those who like to go for walks. You can choose how far you want to go.
