Day Two: Hot Air Ballooning, Kuranda  & Skyrail:

Spend the morning gently floating over the Tropical Tablelands and Australian bush lands at dawn with a 30 min Hot Air Balloon experience followed by free time in Kuranda and Skyrail Cableway.  Included in your day is plenty of time to explore the Kuranda Markets and other attractions.   

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.

Then it's time to board Skyrail, the world's longest gondola cableway, for the journey back to Cairns. 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. It is a brilliant half-day option for people of all ages.

Departs Cairns around 4:15am and you can spend as little or as much time in Kuranda as you like.  The standard day has you arriving in Kuranda by 9am after the Hot Air Ballooning experience.  With a Skyrail departing Kuranda at 1:15pm and your coach transfer from the Skyrail station at Smithfield back to your hotel departing at 3pm.   If you prefer less time in Kuranda please let us know.

Being a continental island, it is covered with lush, pristine rainforest. Getting wet and exploring the coral reef surrounding the island, where tropical fish present a rainbow of colour, is as easy as stepping off the beach.

Bird life also abounds here, presenting a natural showcase not to be missed. If you want to explore an idyllic, unspoilt tropical paradise, your choices are plentiful with a day tour to Fitzroy Island.

Spend the day snorkelling the fringing coral reefs, strolling through the National Park rainforest walking tracks, or for the more adventurous hiker, discover breathtaking views of the island and surrounding reefs. There are hiking trails and guided walks as well as numerous water sports options available.

1 Day Balloon & Kuranda Tour Combo (4)

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.
