If you can, allow more time than you might think to spend in Kuranda township: there is an amazing amount of arts & crafts stalls to see with something for all tastes. From the cable car & stops, the view over the rainforest & rivers are magnificent. The scenic railway trip had lots of historical information from the attendant & offered views not seen from the cable car.
The website doesn’t make it clear but you are able to book departure times every 15 mins on Skyrail & if returning by the scenic railway it is possible to depart 3:30pm. We booked our tickets & then rang the office to have changes made. These were updated on our booking reservation number & effortlessly changed on our tickets when we printed them on the day.
Everything else was very well arranged. We walked around the lookouts at Red Peak & spent 20 mins in the CSIRO display at Barron Falls. There were free umbrellas for use at the two cable car stops; there is no food or water at the two stops, but there are toilets. The estimate of 90 mins for the cable car trip to the top was spot on.
We arrived at Kuranda & recc’ed out the place for lunch. After lunch we found we were still rushing to get between all of the stalls & points of interest to get back for the train at 2pm.
