The Rainforest Station was the highlight of the day. The people at the station were very knowledgeable and helpful. We learned about the indigenous people and their culture. Got to hold a koala, pet a kangaroo and see a cassowary, We enjoyed the train ride and skyrail, but they limited the amount of time we had available to spend at... More

We took 3 day tours with them. Pickup was punctual. Driver doubled up as tour guide and were knowledgeable and witty. Will definitely use them again.

On my recent trip to Cairns I had booked three tours with Down Under and I had issues with all three. It was extremely disappointing. I won't get into the details as I have spoken to management at Down Under about the issues and I feel I don't need to go into them here. I have appreciated the way they... More

We booked a self drive Kuranda option through our hotel desk. Someone met us at the skyrail ticket box and gave us our ticket. We didn't check the details at the time but on arriving to the top, we found out we'd been given a return train journey for the next day. The rail staff were able to sort it... More

We were skeptical at first. Being the opposite of morning people, my girlfriend and I were not in the best mood at 8:30 in the morning, but that quickly changed due to how awesome our bus driver Paul was. That guy is hilarious. The trip to the Tjapukai cultural center started out like every field trip you ever took in... More
