We went on the Kuranda Scenic Rail up to the town and then returned via Skyrail. The train journey was excellent, although they might consider some fans if not A/C in the carriages as it gets very hot. In the town there and multiple things to do and places to eat. We visited the Butterfly Park, held koalas at the... More

We travelled on the Kuranda Railway from Cairns and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The scenery was lovely as we travelled up to Kuranda. The town itself is also very pretty. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone, couples, singles or families.

We rented a car and drove to Kuranda so that we were free to do what we wanted to do instead of taking the train or cable car. On the way we stopped at few places to look at the breathtaking views of the mountain ranges and sea ! Visited the 'Rainforestation Park' where you get to see the tropical... More

We had one of our party (me) with a mobility issue plus two youngsters. The staff-on several occasions ensured... More

It was an amazing experience to feed and pet the marsupials, the koalas, etc. The Kuranda National Park also has a amazing waterfalls and a rain-forest trail which is a must-go.

The train trip up to this quaint little town is a lot of fun, and very scenic. The town itself is great to walk around, and there are a few good walking trails that will take you into the forest. The Sky Tram down from Kuranda was fantastic. I only wish we had had more time at the stops along... More
