A day of Australiana - Kuranda
, Dec 2020
The train ride to Kuranda was a ride back in time, traveling in carriages from a long gone era with a history of the railway and the sacrifices made in its construction included for the history buffs. For an avid shutterbug like myself, it provided endless photo opportunities of the magnificent landscapes. Once in Kuranda there were so many great activities to choose from we were spoilt for choice - Butterflies, markets filled with local arts, crafts and produce, wild life, army ducks tours into the rain forest. The interactive presentation by the indigenous people of the area is something not to be missed, with traditional dancing, spear throwing demonstrations and you even get to throw a boomerang. The trip back down in the sky-rail offered spectacular panoramic views from above the rain forests to the magnificent coastline including Cairns. The guides were very informative and friendly. It was a day filled with local delights, history and activities, leaving you tired but satisfied. Definitely a trip not to be missed.
Awesome day out

Best day trip from Cairns
, Mar 2020
Best day trip we took from Cairns. Scenic railway: beautiful and interesting. Kuranda itself was fun if touristy. Only spent an hour there, which was good. Rainforestation: loved it! It's why I picked this tour over others. Excellent buffet lunch (including kangaroo satays and crocodile soup). Educational and entertaining amphibious vehicle tour thru the rainforest. Interesting and fun Aboriginal demos (and trying to throw a boomerang ourselves LOL). Tour thru wildlife park, got to pet a kangaroo and wallaby. Just awesome good times! Then a beautiful and exhilarating skyrail down. Well organized, and I thought the right amount of time was allotted for each activity. Adrian, the driver/guide was great fun. The whole day was just really, really excellent.
Truly fun experience

Bus driver was awesome, the railway had some spectacular scenery, the village was quaint, lunch was good, the native demonstrations were informative and entertaining! Skyrail was a little scary but wouldn't have missed it.
Very Enjoyable Day

This was a very well organized tour. Very enjoyable. Nice lunch with a good selection of food. I really liked the interaction with the animals and the Kuranda show.
Excellent Adventure
, Jul 2019
Amazing tour overall. Great variety of activities within one long, exciting day. I recommend going up to Kuranda by historic railway and return by incredibly scenic sky rail. The Rain Forest Station Park was a delight and includes Aboriginal activities and performance. The buffet food was enjoyable as well. My favorite part were being able to feed and pet the kangaroos and marvel at the Butterfly Pavillion!

A great day trip. The train stopped so you could take pictures at the most scenic spot but be aware it is a slow ride up the mountain. The Rainforestation is small but very informative. The Skyrail gives you amazing views! The only reason we didn't rate it a five is because the advertised Australian BBQ lunch was a buffet handling many bus loads of people and most of the buffet was Asian food.

This was an exceptional tour, the train was a great trip, the village was a cool place. The rainforest and duck ride was very informative and interesting. The Pamagirri Aboriginal guides were very informative and the wildlife were interesting. The Skyrail trip back was fascinating. This was well worth bearing the heat and humidity. Highly recommend it.

This is one of the best tours we did in Queensland. Not a minute of it was boring. Loved the duck tour and seeing all the animals, throwing the boomerang, the railway journey itself - Too good. The only thing we wished was better was the Pamagirri Aboriginal performance. The performers were taking it too casually and were half-hearted in their performance, spending most of their time in teasing each other on stage and laughing over it. A little more seriousness was expected. Other than that, everything was just perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better day!
