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 preferential 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, you only have limited time to explore this fascinating village – approx. 1hr.  The Kuranda Markets are full of colourful and interesting arts or find the perfect souvenir at one of Kuranda’s eclectic boutiques.

Skyrail Rainforest Cableway:

At 11.30am, 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. 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 where you can discover exceptional views from The Edge Lookout or visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are offered throughout the day at Red Peak Station. After arriving at the Smithfield Skyrail Terminal, our coach is waiting to transfer you to Hartley’s.

Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures:

From Smithfield Terminal, our coach will transfer you to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures – the best place to see crocodiles in North Queensland!

There is plenty of free time to explore the park, and our experience includes a 25 minute Wetlands boat cruise through the ecologically significant Melaleuca wetlands; the domain of the saltwater crocodile. See the notorious head shake and death roll of a huge saltwater crocodile at the Crocodile Attack Show, and  discover the world’s most venomous snakes at the Snake Show!
