Spent two full days on Reef and had one extra day and wanted to use time to see the most. Ummm his trip was it. Took train up and sky rail down. Sky rail closes at 5:00 and bus waits at bottom until everyone is down. Had lots of time on way down to visit side stops and even a free short tour. At top of Kuranda once off the railway or sky rail you take a small shuttle or short walk into shopping area with h Restaurants. Most shops close around 3-4. You can go to Butterfly or Koala Park for extra fees. We opted to pick up bus from Butterfly venue and go to Rainforestation and fed kangaroo(get feed before entering animal area, saw Tasmanian devil, koalas, crocs. Great buffet lunch with kangaroo and croc soup. Plus aboriginal show!!

We enjoyed this tour very much !

We had hesitated between all the available options in Kuranda and eventually decided to take the scenic railway to go to Kuranda and the Skyrail cableway to come back. We are very happy about it, both are different, it was very interesting :
- to take the historic train, learn more about its construction and be immersed in the landscape, while also making a stop to see Barron Falls
- and then travelling above the rainforest (it is impressive to be so high above ground, so be careful about that if you are afraid of heights).

Pick-up and drop-off at the hotel were greatly appreciated.

During our time in Kuranda we had time to see shops, we also did a part of a rainforest walk and strolled near the river.

Type of visit : family (adults)

Terrific organization from pick up to drop off. Dubious about the amount of time allotted at the attractions but it was just right! Plenty of time to walk the village and visit the koalas and enjoy the Sky View walks.

The pacing for this day was good, we had enough time at each of the stops and everything was clear. I'd definitely do this day trip again!
