Take the train from Cairns up to the township Kuranda.. Se the great little township with all it's attractions. The train from Cairns takes about 1/30 to 2 hours. It stops at some great photo taking spots on the way up, so that folk can get off, go for a walk, and see the great scenery, water falls etc. This... More

Originally we had purchased the “Skyrail Rainforest Cableway Day Trip from Cairns”. Unfortunately the Cable car had been out of service during our stay. Having rented a tiny 4-seater car the day before, the next morning I decided to drive to Kuranda, Village in the Rainforest. The ride itself was absolutely a thrill, especially for those who have been driving... More

I suggest going to the train station and buy a single train ticket to Kuranda. Please remember trains leave at 830 and 930 am from Cairns. To get to the train station you need to go through Cairns Shopping centre and the car park. When I was travelling they were doing a buy one get on free option, which saved... More

Quaint Aborigine village, with lots of arts and crafts, a short distance from Cairns. The village seems to be open from 10am - 4pm so plan accordingly

If you're looking for something to do, fill in your day with a visit to the Kuranda skyrail and train trip. The stops aren't anything too exciting, but worth doing. Kuranda itself is a little boring - full of dinky little markets and shops but mostly selling Chinese made junk. The best is the Cellar Door of Golden Drop. Friendly... More

My wife and I did the Kuranda scenic rail trip to Kuranda Village and returned by the cable car. The scenic train trip was superb. A lovely train journey of some 90 minutes commencing from a very quant old style train station in Cairns, stopping once on the way up in very comfortable coaches. The attendants are so kind and...

My partner and I did not have a car in Port Douglas so we loved the idea of being able to go on a half day tour then throw ourselves back in the pool at the resort for the remainder of the day. Glenn is a real treat. Funny guy and very knowledgeable. He really made the tour great. I... More
