India Rose Long, 18 Oct 23
Magical! Kuranda was our first day trip in cairns and it was just beautiful! We started the day on a scenic train through the mountains and boy was it scenic! Waterfalls, wildlife and rainforest… what more could you ask for! We then spent the afternoon at the Kuranda Markets, Butterfly Sanctuary, Army Duck Tour and learning the incredible culture of the Pamagarri Tribe such as throwing a boomerang, spearing and playing the digereedoo! We also got to watch an amazing dance performance from them which was one of my favourite things of the day. We then visited the reforestation/ rehabilitation area, had a delicious BBQ lunch and visited the animals they had there and a lovely guide taught us all we needed to know! Finally, we got on the sky rail which was a PERFECT way to end the day. There was 2 stops, a glass boardwalk and the waterfall which was just stunning. I would recommend this tour to anyone if any age! Families, elderly and solo travellers!
Jess, 12 Oct 23
From start to finish, this was a great day and exceeded my expectations! I loved the scenic train up the mountain range learning the history behind it's making, and stopping at Barron Falls station for a photo op. The Butterfly Sanctuary, and Rainforestation were great. Thoroughly enjoyed the Army Duck and Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience with a cultural dance and demonstrations of how to use the spears, boomerang and didgeridoo! The Skyrail cable ride over the rainforest and back down the range was breathtaking with the afternoon sun setting. It's a great way to experience a lot in one day! Definitely recommend.
Grace Oliver, 04 Jan 23
Amazing day! The Army Duck tour was a highlight, and the tour guide was so knowledgeable about the rainforest! The scenic train is incredible and the skyrail gives a whole different perspective. This tour is the whole package and so well organised.
