Quiet,easy day in the country and small Village. Lots of food and small craft shops. Don't sit in first cars on the train! Engine fumes were nasty. Easy walking in area. Three hours to see tours of butterflies, birds, or Kuala bears (and native animals) after you arrive in

The vintage rail trip up to Kuranda and the ride back down on the Skyrail gondola offered us spectacular vistas of the rainforest, the Barron River, and the Coral Sea. The village of Kuranda had great shopping and fun restaurants. Stu, our bus driver from Global Travel

Take the scenic railway up to Kuranda and Skyrail back is the way to go. Some did the other way around, but I don't recommend it. The seats in the scenic rail/train is designed for the train going from Freshwater Station (near Cairns) to Kuranda, easier for photo shooting

Great cable car ride down - beautiful views. Great bus driver and narrative the trip up. We would have preferred the train but it was down for maintenance. Lots of shops and restaurants at Kuranda. We were expecting more of a aboriginal feel to Kuranda.
