What to Expect

Enjoy a full and fantastic day out in Kuranda, a quaint mountain village situated in the World Heritage rainforests of Tropical North Queensland. 

 

Your adventure starts with convenient pick-ups from your hotel in Cairns, Palm Cove, or Port Douglas (prices vary). Then, jump onboard the 9:50 am Kuranda Scenic Railway departure, where you'll wind your way higher into the range, through tunnels and over bridges, passing StoneyCreek and Barron Falls.

 

Once you arrive in Kuranda Village, you'll have some free time to explore on your own. Then, make your way to the bus stop outside the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary at 11:45 am for the short transfer to the Rainforestation Nature Park.

 

Rainforestation Nature Park is an immersive experience that lets you learn more about the environment, local Indigenous culture, and the wildlife that calls this beautiful part of the world home.

 

First, take an Army Duck Rainforest Tour, which includes a visit to a tropical fruit orchard. Travel deep into the rainforest on both land and water in an amphibious vehicle as your guide explains different species of flora and fauna.

 

At the Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience, you'll watch the Pamagirri Dancers perform in the rainforest amphitheatre. Then, join a Dreamtime Walk, learn to throw a boomerang and watch spear-throwing and didgeridoo playing.

 

Finally, at the Koala & Wildlife Park, learn more about the native wildlife from the dedicated and passionate keepers. See crocodiles, wombats, snakes, dingoes, a cassowary, and hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies. You’ll have an opportunity to have a photo taken with a koala or holding a small crocodile. 

 

In among all the adventure, you'll also enjoy a delicious hot lunch at the Rainforest Cafe in the Rainforestation Nature Park. 

 

Depart the park at 3:00 pm for the return shuttle to Kuranda Village for your 3:30 pm boarding of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. The 7.5km Skyrail journey takes 30–40 minutes and takes you gently down the side of the mountain suspended above the treetops with epic views out to the coast. It's recommended you spend time at the two stations en route: Red Peak Station and Barron Falls Station, especially when there's been rain and Barron Falls are in full force. 

 

The Skyrail also has a multi-lingual Interpretive App and Audio Guide, which you can download from the App Store or Google Play.

 

The coach will be at the Smithfield Skyrail Terminal to transfer you back to your accommodation.
