Very informative, great that the boat and train are so close to the Skyrail. The tour guide explained in a lot of detail and learnt a lot about the area. Well worth it?

We really enjoyed the environment and the commentary. A snapshot of the area and the history. A simple trip, easy and entertaining for young and old. Fully recommend this inexpensive way to see the pleasures of the Barron river. Warren was a worthy host and ‘Elvis’ the cassowary, a hit with everyone.

This was a most enjoyable and informative riverboat sightseeing cruise and we would most definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Kuranda. It is a very peaceful and quiet cruise, having all the wildlife pointed out to you along the way plus the opportunity to see the crocodiles, turtles and feed the fish was a good experience.
