I dont like heights, but still found the cable car nice. If that's something that worries you, it doesnt go extremely high up, and you get breaks in between to walk forest boardwalks.

The train is also very good. You get alot of chances to take photos, although the train only stopped once. There are plenty of clearings on the way down to see the ocean and towns below.

we went up to Kuranda on the train, it was fun easy and we took lots of pictures along the way. spend time in town shopping and eating then rode the Sky Rail back down. The Sky Rail was incredible. We were high above the trees you can see for miles. Get out on the first stop and see the gorge from that side it breathe taking.

We took the scenic railway up to Kuranda and had a look around in the Market and Bird World there along with time to stop to have a bite to eat. Beautiful place, I would recommend and go back again. We then took the cable car back down to get a different view which was amazing.
