Start your day with a journey on the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway, journeying up the mountain to the village of Kuranda. The historic railroad rises from sea level to 328m and passes through ancient rainforest, providing you with incredible views of Cairns and the coast. Look out for waterfalls, and enjoy the stop at the breathtaking Barron Gorge.

Explore the largest flight aviary in Australia at the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, with over 2000 butterflies fluttering freely around you. Visit the Breeding Laboratory and learn about the life cycle of the butterfly.

Enjoy a visit to the award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park, where you can take a tour on a historic World War II Army Duck over land and through water. The friendly and informative Duck Captains will identify and explain the flora and fauna of some of the worlds oldest rainforest.

Join a guided tour of the Koala and Wildlife Park and see koalas, snakes, dingoes, a cassowary and the only Tasmanian Devils in North Queensland. Learn about their behaviour and quirky traits, as our experienced guides introduce you to each animal. Visit the Barramundi Lake and look out for Jack the Ripper, the 5 metre saltwater crocodile from the safety of elevated boardwalks and platforms. You can even hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies as they roam freely through the park, and cuddle a koala for the perfect photo souvenir!

The Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience is unforgettable. Follow your Pamagirri Guide along the Dreamtime Walk down the Rainbow Serpent pathway, and learn how to throw a traditional boomerang. Your Pamagirri guide will demonstrate traditional spear throwing as well as a didgeridoo presentation, followed by an energetic and interactive traditional Aboriginal dance performance in the Rainforest Amphitheatre. The performance depicts aspects of indigenous culture including animals, food gathering and hunting. The rainforest serves as the theatre walls whilst sounds of wildlife provide accompaniment to the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo and clapsticks. Be sure to watch closely - there's a surprise for the audience at the end!

Enjoy the world-famous sumptuous Aussie BBQ buffet lunch overlooking the lake.

You will finish your day with a return to Cairns on the scenic Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, travelling in comfortable 6-person gondolas just metres above the rainforest canopy. The cableway spans 7.5km, passing over the rainforest and Barron River as it makes its way down to Cairns.

  • Super valeu a pena. O passeio não tem guia turistico o tempo todo, mas no inicio do passeio, o pessoal da empresa dá um roteiro com os horarios que tem que seguir para dar tudo certo. E funcionou certinho, pois o pessoal do Kuranda já tem tudo esquematizado dos grupos que estão visitando.
    No passeio, adorei o show dos aborigenes, skyrail, e tirar foto segurando o koala, por 25 dólares algo que não tem em nenhum outro zoo.

  • We came to Cairns only for the Great barrier reef, but only because we had no idea there was so much to do in this area! We are very glad we went on this trip. We took an old train up the mountain and saw some really neat views. We did some shopping at the shops in Kuranda before the butterfly exhibit. Then we were taken to Rainforestation where they fed us a good for a buffet meal and gave us time to take a picture with a koala or a baby croc. We then went on a Duckboat tour. The tour was very neat and informative, although I wish it were a bit longer. We then went to watch an aboriginal dance show. I didn't like the show very much as we had seen a different and better one the night before from a different company. After the show, the dancers took us to learn about a didgeridoo, throwing spears, and we even got to through a boomerang! That was great! We then got to tour the animal enclosure where they had dingos, a giant saltwater croc named Jack, and a cassowary. They even had Kangaroo and wallabies hopping around free in the main area of the enclosure. One of the best parts of the whole trip though, was saved for the end. The bus dropped us off at the Skyrail station and we took the gondola over the rainforest and down the mountain. IT WAS AMAZING! I would definitely recommend this whole trip to anyone already going to Cairns!

  • Great tour and great organisation.

  • This tour was really worth every penny spent and we did so many activities. The train ride and cable way return was both different experiences not to be missed. The butterfly park has a lot of show and so is the rainforest. The entire trip was very well organized.

  • A very full day with variety for everyone. Like culture? The aboriginal dances and demos were great. Animal lover? The little sanctuary had plenty of variety and holding a koala was awesome. Scenery buff? You can't beat the views from the train and the sky rail. Nature nut? The butterfly encounter was beautiful and the duck boat tour bouncy but interesting. Foodie? There is a very nice buffet with traditional and unique choices for everyone. Totally organized with a timed itinerary given to you to keep you on track. I would have loved another hour or two in Kuranda to visit the shops and the snake place but that would have made for an extremely long trip. I would definitely do this one again!

  • We loved the town of Kuranda, a nice surprise. Beautiful views from the Skyrain and from the train. We went on Gold Class and have a very nice and tasty snacks, and drinks.

  • Really is the best! We got to see so much and had fun right from the beginning!
    The whole day itself was organised very well, I like that we were given a timetable and everything was very straightforward. All that we did, we enjoyed without being rushed or spending too much time in one place.

  • We were shuttled around a bit like livestock but the experience was very interesting. The history of the region as well as the beauty is well highlighted. I would recommend the tour if you find yourself in or near Cains.

  • This was a great day trip. Our guide was informative and engaging. The train ride up was spectacular, we got to hold our first Koala, fed the kangaroos, rode in a duck, threw a boomerang, and got to watch various Aboriginal dances. We topped off the day by flying over the rainforest canopy on the Skyrail. It was a great first day trip and really set the tone for a great vacation.

  • This was our 2nd visit to Kuranda.This time we did the army duck which was great fun, although it rained heavily adding to the fun. We also went around the butterfly sanctuary. Unfortunately the weather was wet and misty on our trip down on the skyrail but still a great experience
