“Great ride ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

My wife and I took a trip on this railway on July 12th. The views were gorgeous. Staff came around to take our picture and answer our questions. Water available in every car. They also informed us about every major landmark and even stopped the train to ensure everyone got pictures as we were passing an amazing waterfall. If you are patient to go through a 2 hour ride of incredible rainforest landscape I strongly recommend this activity.

“Alvin and Diane Stratford”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Was OK and entertaining but not worth the money #240 for the two of us including hotel transfers.
It is something that we would not do again at the price.

“good ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

alway like the feeling of taking railway. it will bring you through the scenic views. The good thing is that it will inform you of what places the train is passing by, remind you of the good spot for photo taking, etc.
suggest to take skyrail up and return by railway. so you will have 2 different experience.

“Scenic trip”

Slow but pretty, we enjoyed our day out in Kuranda. Make sure to ask for a window seat when you book your ticket.
