Heading to Cairns area tomorrow for 11 days. Will have a rental car for entire time.
I originally baulked at the train/skyway price & was just going to drive to Kuranda & do what stops I can on the way by car. Looking at reviews of the train trip, the value seemed to vary depending whether you got a window seat or not & what side of train you sit. Now I'm thinking the Skyway only price is a bit more reasonable, especially one way. But if I was to drive to Kuranda, get Skyway down, how difficult is it to get a bus from Skyway bottom station back to Kuranda to get the car. If the only way to do it was shuttle to Cairns city & then bus to Kuranda, I think it would be too much hassle & probably not a lot cheaper than just getting return Skyway.
Or am I not really missing much by just doing it by car?
