Had a great time on this attraction in F.N.Q. One of the best things to do when in or near Cairns, train was in first class carriage from the 1940's. Service was great and staff knew when to take the best photos. Kuranda was too arts and crafts for me but may be OK for overseas visitors. Skyrail back to start was perfect way to finish this amazing day out. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is visiting this area of Australia.

This is my second Skyrail and Kuranda visit. The train ride was great even though it rained. We had a fantastic time in Kuranda village, even though the koala that I was holding bit and clawed me. He thought he was going to fall from my arms and got scared. My grandkids had no problem with him. We still enjoyed our koala experience immensely. The bird sanctuary was a hoot as the big Macaw tore my hat up and some other birds landed on my grandchildren. Lunch at the restaurant was awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed the day out on the Scenic Rail and the Sky Rail. The few hours at Karanda was interesting as the last time we were in Karanda was in 1973.
