Kuranda Scenic Rail:

This morning our driver will greet you, collect your voucher and issue your Kuranda Boarding Pass. We will then transfer you to Freshwater Station. There is no need to queue as your pre-allocated Train tickets are already on your Boarding Pass.

Once aboard, enjoy this historical rail journey to Kuranda, enjoying breathtaking views across the cane fields of Cairns, to the tropical rainforest of Kuranda.

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 or the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary [at own expense]. Your Kuranda Boarding Pass also offers discounted entry into selected Kuranda attractions.


At the specified time, your shuttle coach will transfer you to Rainforestation, set in 40 hectares of lush gardens and tropical rainforest, where a number of unique attractions await you. Board the unusual amphibious Army Duck for a different look at the rainforest. Also included in your tour is the Koala & Wildlife Park. The shuttle bus will then take you back to Kuranda.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway:

At the scheduled time, make your way directly to the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway boarding line – there is no need to queue as your tickets are already on your Boarding Pass. Enjoy your 7.5km 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. Explore rainforest boardwalks and lookouts and the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are offered throughout the day at Red Peak Station.

After arriving at the Smithfield Skyrail terminal, travel back to Cairns by coach, in airconditioned comfort.
