Kuranda Skyrail & Scenic Railway Combo With Tropic Wings
From $168pp

Imagine a mountain village nestled high up in the rainforest overlooking a tropical town and out to the Coral Sea. Well, you just imagined Kuranda Rainforest Village.

Kuranda is best visited with the one-way skyrail and one-way scenic railway combination. Experience incredible 360 degree panoramic views of the rainforest canopy as you glide across on the skyrail cable car. Make the most of the ranger guided stop off points and take a boardwalk through the forest. Now, if you’re not just in it for the jaw dropping views that people from far and wide visit for, you can expect to find markets, galleries, cafes, and super-friendly locals.

For the second leg of the journey, expect to get up close and personal as you chug past the magical Barron Waterfall while zig zagging your way through the rainforest on the 120 year old scenic railway. This is the perfect trip to do if you want a cruisy day trip and fancy soaking up some of the historical natural beauty and incredible culture that tropical Far North Queensland has to offer.
Check out the varying booking options including coach transfers and VIP upgrades. You decide.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I need help with my tour booking?

If you need help with an existing booking please email us at [email protected], if your enquiry is urgent please follow up your email with a quick call on +61 2 5633 1149 so we can help you.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely, we understand that paying off a big trip in one go isn’t always that easy. We offer flexible payment plans to suit all types of travellers with zero interest or fee’s (minimum $100AUD deposit required).

Do I need travel insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travelers take out travel insurance.

Can I book a package but travel in the reverse direction?

Absolutely, just let us know your preferred start and finish location and we’ll make it work.

What is the best way to travel Australia?

There is definitely no wrong way. We recommend either taking a WHIMIT or Hop on Hop off bus pass such as Greyhound or renting a campervan with some mates and hitting the open road. If you feel like getting pretty adventurous and want to get amongst the true Australian terrain, a 4WD may be better suited for you. Enquire now and we can help you find the most suitable transport option.

What if something comes up and I can't make my tour?

We get it. Life is all about the unexpected, especially when you are travelling. If you are unable to make your pre-arranged tour you will need to reach out to our support email so we can give you a helping hand.
