Kuranda Experience

My boyfriend and I are thinking of heading up to Kuranda but have heard mixed reviews.

Originally we were thinking of catching the Skyrail up and then getting the Scenic railway on the way down. However we are now thinking of driving both up and down. Do you still get to see all the sights etc when driving up?

Also the tours seem to have Skyrail on the way up and Rail down, is it possible to mix these around so that you can see the view of the water on the way down? Just trying to figure out what we should do.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Hi Danni, in the absence of any local or experienced advice (thus far) re your questions , I’ll provide what I know about it;

I haven’t done the drive up/back so can’t comment on that but my partner and I did the Skyrail up & the Scenic railway down… and enjoyed it immensely… but yes you can do it the other way around if you wish.

Info re Kuranda Scenic Railway including timetable & Skyrail info at the following weblinks:

More info at: http://www.skyrail.com.au

Hope it helps, Cheers, Wally B :-)
