  • Great Day wih the Family, great staff working there. Only thing is no shuttle bus between Train and Skyrail.. Price is for many families an issue in the future. You should go bright and early up to have the time exploring.

  • Wonderful day out, allow extra time in Kuranda... beautiful place to explore. A must is one of the boat to see the freshwater crocodiles, turtles and snakes. Stunning place to visit. Family fun day out (11yr old & 14 yr old both going on 18+)

  • Skyrail is truly amazing. We were so pleased to see the rainforest from a whole new angle (literally), and to know that this world heritage area will be preserved for future generations, supported by environmentally sustainable tourism. Well done Skyrail!

  • Thank you, again. Great experience. We have a trip on Skyrail every year. Always great. Good service. You need to ask at the ticket office about the best times to travel to avoid busy times. I suggest to get off at all stops.

  • I have been with my family twice and i love it. It's so relaxing to sit down and look out the window, then you reach the destination what is great with lots of fun things to do.
