    It was a lovely way to spend the day. We caught the cable car up to Kuranda and then enjoyed a riverboat ride down the Barron River where we spotted a crocodile and turtles.

    Our guide was very experienced and gave es multiple details of the life of those beautiful butterflies. We also saw the eggs of the butterfly and saw how she dropped them off on a flower. We visited the breeding room so that we can get a picture of how is a butterfly develops from an egg. It was lovely to spend time in this incredible garden. Please pay attention it is quite humid due to there is a roof protection for keeping the butterflies not to escape. So you need to prepare a bottle of water! Enjoy it!

    Cameron was very professional & enthusiastic when showing us through the museum.Very knowledgeable about the animals on display and was able to answer all my daughters questions about the construction of the aquarium. Interested to know if the clownfish eggs hatched and if there was survivors??? Dundees served a lovely meal and Thomas, including other servers we encountered on the night were all attentive and friendly. Only downside was probably our steaks weren’t cooked to our satisfaction. This was mentioned on the night and not something that could possibly be rectified once the steak is half eaten (only to find the middle raw). Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Unfortunately, the fog in the morning affected our view of the Gorge and the views on the train ride. Luckily it lifted in the afternoon and we were able to get a look at it on the way home on the sky rail. Kuranda was beautiful and we had a lovely day exploring.

A great day at Fitzroy Island. Couldn't believe we saw a turtle up close in the ocean. Amazing.

Excellent experience. Staff and facilities were amazing.
