Great day out at Kuranda

Our day started with our Bus driver and tour guide Stu from GTS he put us in for a great mood to start the trip off. Although it rained all day the train trip up to Kuranda was fantastic, followed by lunch and a walk around town. We took the cableway back home which was also worth doing with a couple of stops on the way to take in more scenery and photo opportunities. Then the bus back with Stu and what a great job he did. Thanks Stu for you commentary all the way back to the hotel.

Well worth the tour

From pick up to drop off the whole experience was amazing. The highlight of the tour for me was the train ride up and the highlight for my husband and grand daughter was the Skyrail back. Well worth the tour.

Kuranda train & skyrail

An enjoyable day that started with an amazing crew that picked us up promptly from our hotel and entertained us on the trip the train station. Amazing scenery on the way up on the train with a few money shot photos over the bridge and the waterfalls. We were lucky to be allocated to carriage 1 on the way up which gave an amazing view of the length of the train around every corner. Be prepared for fumes through the tunnel. At the top we went on the little boat cruise and saw some amazing turtles and fish, however no crocs around (too warm in February), so a little disappointing. Pretty uneventful trip back - I'm scared of heights, but felt more than comfortable in the skyrail, which gives you two opportunities to hop off and check out the waterfall via glass bottom walkway (I avoided that bit!) and take a walk through the rainforest. Huge rainforest! Great descent at the bottom with a view to the coast. Be prepared for your photo to be taken at the bottom.
