Half Day Kuranda Tours Including Kuranda Scenic Rail & Skyrail

Half Day Kuranda, Skyrail & Scenic Rail

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway:

Why not enjoy a sleep-in and relaxed breakfast this morning? Our driver will then greet you, collect your voucher and issue your Kuranda Boarding Pass. We will then transfer you to Skyrail Rainforest Cableway Smithfield, where you proceed directly to the boarding line – there is no need to queue as your tickets are already on your Boarding Pass.

Once aboard, be amazed as you journey over and through World Heritage protected Rainforest. Your Boarding Pass is your ticket for this iconic rainforest experience that includes time at both Red Peak and Barron Falls stations, both with spectacular lookouts. Or visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are offered throughout the day at Red Peak Station.

Kuranda Village

Upon arrival in Kuranda, it’s time to explore this fascinating village. The Kuranda Markets are full of colourful and interesting arts and crafts. You might also like to visit Birdworld, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary or Kuranda Koala Gardens [at own expense]. Your Kuranda Boarding Pass also offers discounted entry into selected Kuranda attractions.

Kuranda Scenic Rail:

10 minutes before your scheduled departure time, board the train and take your seats – your tickets are already on your Boarding Pass so no need to check in. After boarding the train, your journey winds through hand-hewn tunnels, across bridges and around curves, all the time appreciating what an amazing engineering feat it is.

Upon arrival at Freshwater Station, our coach will be waiting to transfer you back. Your Boarding Pass will tell you which coach to look for.
