“awesome daytrip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Do the walkabout in one of the worlds oldest rainforests - try not to get attacked by a cassowry, but do try and lick some of the green ants bums! (the taste like lime! i swear!)

There are some amazing look-out spots along the way, and the guide will point out things you would never have noticed on your own, and tell you all about the interesting fauna from the Strangler Trees to the walking trees that move position....epic!

“Daintree forest”

Amazing trees and venue, lots to learn if you listen to the professor. Great drive to get there as well.

“Kuranda railway & skyway self drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Train ride & sky rail are great but a little expensive. Would have been happy to just ride the train up then get straight on the sky rail back down as Kuranda itself is a waste of time - most of the market is closed & the rest of it is trashy overpriced cheap tourist shops. Not good enough Kuranda - get your act together.

“A magical day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This place just takes you somewhere else - it's just so relaxing and quiet. I wish I had a chair and a book and just sat in the rainforest for the day, it was beautiful.
