1 Day Balloon & Kuranda Tour Combo Info
BALLOON, KURANDA & SKYRAIL or TRAIN:
See the best of the Cairns Highlands by air, with a balloon flight and a choice of either Skyrail rainforest cableway experience or the Kuranda Scenic Rail.
Raging Thunder will take you up on a magical and exhilarating flight of your life in the world's largest commercial hot air balloon. The Atherton Tablelands provide the perfect conditions for Hot Air Ballooning and the view from your basket of rolling hills and winding streams is stunning.
A coach will pick you up from your accommodation for the 90 minute drive to the flight site. You will arrive just in time to see the balloons beginning to inflate.
As the sun rises your pilots gently lift off and quietly glide the balloons over the panorama of the Cairns Highlands.
After your magnificent 30 minute flight transfer to Kuranda Village for free time to explore the markets.

The cable stretches 7.5 kilometres just metres above Tropical North Queensland's world heritage rainforest with spectacular views of the coast like you've never seen before.

irish pub perfect on a hot day
Once again the people are so good at there jobs. The balloon ride was a real treat, fantastic operator and support crew. Magic location to watch the sun come up.Kuranda markets and walkes were great and the irish pub perfect on a hot day. Skyrail and stopping stations are brilliant.

animal interactions were the best part
Hot air balloon and morning animal interactions were the best part. The waiting around for the skyrail was the worst since it was a hot, humid day.
