  • Did this trip with the family 6 year old included. The train ride into the forest was a bit long this is the only part of the trip that I could have done without. The rest of the day was great, got to take a picture with a koala, throw a boomerang not successfully, Gondola ride - this was spectacular, sit back and enjoy the views. Enjoyed getting off at the second stop and taking the small walk around the park guide - oh no, I forgot his name, was very informative, friendly and funny. Great Barrier Reef ---- WOW!! Something not to pass up. Although the seas were a bit rough getting out, it was all worth it. The views were amazing. They have prescription masks to rent on the boat which made my day - I was actually able to see everything below. HUGE shout out to Michelle and Cosmo. They were both wonderful guides and a favorite of the 6 year old. Cosmo would scoop her out of the water every time she came near the platform. And Wally, can't forget him, seeing a fish that size up close and personal is something to never forget.

  • We had a great time, a little sea sick on the Reef trip, take sea sickness tablets early! Other than that it was a great experience!

  • This was a great tour and I would highly recommend them. We were picked up from our hotel on time as stated in our booking and confirmation. We took the train which took us through the beautiful scenery and waterfalls to the top of Kuranda mountain. There we walked through Kuranda Village with its many unique shops and restaurants. Here we took a boat ride into the rain forest. Afterwards we saw a performance by the Aboriginal dancers and learned how to throw a cool! We then visited a wildlife sanctuary called Featherdale where we saw and took pictures of kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, Tasmanian Devils, penguins, birds etc. We then took the cable car down to the bottom of the mountain where we were picked up by our shuttle bus that took us back to our hotel.

    The second day we were again picked up from our hotel to the wharf to board a catamaran that took us out to the great barrier reef where we spent the day snorkeling and swimming. They also provided a semi-submarine to see the corals as well as a glass bottom boat. A delicious lunch including shrimp was provided with many snacks on the boat on our return back to the wharf. Diving instructions/expedition along with snorkeling safari was offered for an additional cost. The corals around the docking station were awesome and the tour company provided you with a wet suit, snorkeling gear, fins, life vest and swimming noodles if you wish. There was a lifeguard overseeing the swimmers at all times so that even the faint at heart like myself could take the plunge. Would definitely do this tour was definitely worth it!
