Kuranda (Skyrail and Train with Accommodation Transfer)


Our experienced guide will pick you up from your Cairns city accomodation to begin a full day experiencing the natural wonders of Tropical North Queensland.

We will first board the Kuranda Scenic Rail to begin the 2 hour trip to Kuranda. Now imagine all that natural wonder so close that you can almost touch it, your senses alive with the heady organic fragrance and untamed sounds of the dense rainforest. Unwind your way through a tropical paradise framed by rugged mountains with waterfalls tumbling forever into deep ravines.

Upon arriving in Kuranda, you will have a full hour of free time to enjoy the unique atmosphere and an array specialty market stalls & hidden cafes.

Kuranda has a fun and festive atmosphere, became popular with the hippie crowd in the 1960s and ’70s. They have left an artistic and musical legacy that can still be enjoyed today. Look out for the amazing street art and talented buskers performing on street corners.

You will next have the opportunity to experience a fascinating journey above the rainforest canopy aboard with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Enjoy a truly unique perspective of this ancient landscape; glide metres above the pristine jungle canopy before descending to explore the rainforest close up.

After meeting our guide after the Skyrail experience, we will transfer you to the Reef Fleet Terminal in Cairns in time for the boat to take you out to Green Island.

The half day tours allow you to enjoy the beauty of Green Island for a full 2 hours, where you can choose to snorkel, dive, stay dry or view the spectacular underwater reefs in a semi submarine or glass bottom boat, or simply laze on the white sandy beach.

Upon arriving back at Cairns, our guide will drop you off at your hotel, or any other location in the city.

With this tour you can experience the great wonders surrounding Cairns in this time-efficient one day tour!
