A great day trip. The train stopped so you could take pictures at the most scenic spot but be aware it is a slow ride up the mountain. The Rainforestation is small but very informative. The Skyrail gives you amazing views!
The only reason we didn't rate it a five is because the advertised Australian BBQ lunch was a buffet handling many bus loads of people and most of the buffet was Asian food.
This was an exceptional tour, the train was a great trip, the village was a cool place. The rainforest and duck ride was very informative and interesting. The Pamagirri Aboriginal guides were very informative and the wildlife were interesting. The Skyrail trip back was fascinating. This was well worth bearing the heat and humidity. Highly recommend it.
This is one of the best tours we did in Queensland. Not a minute of it was boring. Loved the duck tour and seeing all the animals, throwing the boomerang, the railway journey itself - Too good.
The only thing we wished was better was the Pamagirri Aboriginal performance. The performers were taking it too casually and were half-hearted in their performance, spending most of their time in teasing each other on stage and laughing over it. A little more seriousness was expected.
Other than that, everything was just perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better day!
Super valeu a pena. O passeio não tem guia turistico o tempo todo, mas no inicio do passeio, o pessoal da empresa dá um roteiro com os horarios que tem que seguir para dar tudo certo. E funcionou certinho, pois o pessoal do Kuranda já tem tudo esquematizado dos grupos que estão visitando.
No passeio, adorei o show dos aborigenes, skyrail, e tirar foto segurando o koala, por 25 dólares algo que não tem em nenhum outro zoo.
We came to Cairns only for the Great barrier reef, but only because we had no idea there was so much to do in this area! We are very glad we went on this trip. We took an old train up the mountain and saw some really neat views. We did some shopping at the shops in Kuranda before the butterfly exhibit. Then we were taken to Rainforestation where they fed us a good for a buffet meal and gave us time to take a picture with a koala or a baby croc. We then went on a Duckboat tour. The tour was very neat and informative, although I wish it were a bit longer. We then went to watch an aboriginal dance show. I didn't like the show very much as we had seen a different and better one the night before from a different company. After the show, the dancers took us to learn about a didgeridoo, throwing spears, and we even got to through a boomerang! That was great! We then got to tour the animal enclosure where they had dingos, a giant saltwater croc named Jack, and a cassowary. They even had Kangaroo and wallabies hopping around free in the main area of the enclosure. One of the best parts of the whole trip though, was saved for the end. The bus dropped us off at the Skyrail station and we took the gondola over the rainforest and down the mountain. IT WAS AMAZING! I would definitely recommend this whole trip to anyone already going to Cairns!
