What people are saying about Kuranda Scenic Railway

Fantastic value for money - one stop shop

Great Barrier Reef (outer reef) Was thinking about booking everything separately, but it was really not worth the hassel and so glad we did not - the boat journey was fantastic, the food was amazing and ample - we saw so many types of fish - would deffo recommend wearing the rash suits as we got very sunburnt though even with factor 50 - if you have a car utilise the parking under the hotel opposite as the outdoor carpark has limited stay if you are out all day. Railway and Skyrail (Hotel pick up and drop off included) were extremely good value as well, we got to stop off for photo opportunities on the Railway going up and the scenery was stunning, plenty of time to explore Kurunda, visit the animal attractions and brows the many varied shops - be warned you need cash as not all places take card. All in all excellent value for money, great organisation

Great Barrier Reef with Skyrail and Scenic Rail: 2-Day Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 09/14/2018

Loved the train ride. Skyrail journey was excellent. Enjoyed

Smiling at the end of Skyrail trip in Smithfield was easy and a photo taken by the staff before exiting the cable car for easy memories

Kuranda Full-Day Trip by Train and Skyrail + Hotel Transfer Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 09/05/2018

The Down Under team were professional, courteous, and caring.

The boat that took us to the reef was fast, safe, and easy to get off and into the water for snorkeling. The water was clear and I was able to see hundreds of beautiful fish plus a manta ray and sea cucumbers. The food was all delicious. I highly recommend a trip to the reef with the Down Under crew!

A great way to enjoy this part of the world.

Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Great to learn more about indigenous people. Loved the chance to be up close to a koala. Amazing views of Cairns all the way to Green island. Perfect weather was a key factor. I recommend this tour.

Kuranda Rainforest Full-Day Tour Reviewed by Karen, 04/21/2018

This was an excellent 2-day activity - well organised and well run.

We were taken 50k out to the Outer Barrier Reef for good snorkeling. The catamaran was well equipped with everything required and there were plenty of staff to provide support and guidance for snorkeling. I hadn't thought about a waterproof casing for my phone to take pictures while snorkeling but I was able to buy it on the boat - I recommend you go prepared as you will want to record the beautiful fish and coral that you swim around. When it came to the rain-forest trip the next day, we were surprised not to have a tour-guide accompany us on the train to get to Kuranda Village, they left us at the station and told us what to do. But we were fine without a guide. We were dropped at the station 1.5 hrs before time for the train, this seemed rather early. At the half-way station on the way down by SkyRail the whole system had to stop (for safety) due to a thunder storm with lightening. No-one was left dangling and we were kept informed and given bottles of water, it was well managed.
