The sky rail and scenic railway were worth doing. Lunch was great. The rain forestation was worth doing as well as seeing the Aboriginal show and dancing spear throwing


Great tour but too many things to see and do in one day. Also did not expect to have to use a shuttle bus to go to different places instead of an assigned bus and tour guide. Did not like riding shuttle bus with people standing

Enjoyable trip up on the train with great views. Karunda is good for a body’s with activities to keep you busy all day. Cable car down provides different views of the rain forest and is fun. Make sure you get off at the 2 stations to look at the views.

If you find yourself in this part of the world, I highly recommend this tour. It was enlightening, fun, efficiently run and we had a fabulous guide.

loved the train ride ; the wildlife park; the koala picture opportunity keep in mind that you will be at the train station early until everyone arrives for the departure also i was not keen on the 1 and 1/4 hr
shopping time in the little village i did not need all that time.

Scenic train ride was fun. Village was nice with authentic shops. Rainforestation was fascinating. Pamagirri members were friendly and patient in sharing thei culture. Could pet and feed kangaroos that were not caged. Fed us a good hardy lunch. Skyrail ride is long and stunning. Most worthwhile. Bus driver Mohammed was friendly, entertaining and informative. Great experience altogether.

Had a great day taking the train up the mountain and through the forest, then got a surprisingly good bbq lunch at the wildlife park. This was followed by a koala viewing, aboriginal experience (including throwing boomerangs!) and then hanging out with some wildlife including some kangaroos and wallabies! We ended the day with a beautiful rude on the skyrail and was able to see all of Cairns. It was so beautiful!

A great tour and day, fantastic information provided on where to be when, however there’s a lot fitted in and it did feel quite rushed at times. The Aboriginal Pamagirri Experience felt a little poorly planned, we had about 45 people in our group for the demonstration whilst the other group was about 10.
If you want a photo taken with a Koala then rush lunch and go straight there or you won’t get another chance, if you want until the time they say the queues are too long and you’ll have to decide to miss that or your next tour.
The SkyRail is an amazing experience, however make sure you have a head for heights!
Overall a fantastic tour, great for all ages and would definitely recommend.

This was pretty much a full day's outing...and well worth it. Prepare to step back in to time, The narration and the twisting turning on the Scenic Railway sets the stage. The duck boats place you into the experience of the rain forest. And to hold a cuddly Koala and/or pitch a boomerang is rather special in itself. And then there is the return to the outside world by gliding over the top of the forest which leaves one with the knowledge you have been treated to something unique.

Great day if you have limited time and want to see as much as possible. If you're looking for a more natural wildlife and native experience, this is not the trip. The views from the train and skyrail are remarkable. But the rest is a bit touristy.

This was a great day tour! I loved how much was included and how you were able to see the rain forest, the marketplace and of course, the animals. The koalas and kangaroos were definitely a highlight, as was the wonderful Skyrail ride down the mountain. The views were breathtaking and it was amazing to see the rain forest from that viewpoint, after having just been in it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns as it's not too far from the beach cities but gives a totally different perspective and experience.


This is absolutely excellent value for money, it had breathtaking views and is a very fun filled packed day with lots of activities, the Duck Tour was very interesting and we fell in love with the Koalas, the Skyrail is unique....truly amazing day and a must do on your visit to Cairns, excellent Tour guide too

This tour was disappointing. The ride up on the skyrail is exciting, but you are not given enough time at all in Kuranda to do anything. They have wildlife encounters, a butterfly sanctuary, shops, eateries, and pathways. They only allow, on the tour, about 40 minutes in Kuranda. The advertisement stated all of those features but it was disingenuous because you actually don't have time to do any of it. We did not do the Rainforestation portion because we wanted to stay in Kuranda a bit longer than 40 minutes. It should be broken up into 2 tours because it is too rushed.

Excellent Skyrail Cableway trip up to Kuranda in the morning,
but return trip via Scenic railway the afternoon was very hot
and the views not so good if you are sat at the aisle end of the seats.

Also felt the Rainforest trip intinerary was a bit cramped and rushed,
would have like to have spent more time viewing the animals.
