Must do experience
, Oct 2021
The Kuranda rail trip up and the Skyrail down where awesome trip and views. The Rainforeststation / Pamagirri Aboriginal experience didn't live up to its name , whether it was because we where Queenslanders & it was our third look at rainforest on this trip (The package was great ) Duck ride worth it . But i will applaud the Aboriginal experience as they seem to have a couple of inexperienced dancers and the drive to perform was not there as COVID culled the crowds of hundreds and our crowd was twenty .
eventful day seeing rain forestation sky rail scenic rainforest and aboriginal show
, Jul 2021
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
Fabulous, well worth doing

Great day with magnificent scenery and lovely people. Had some interesting information forthcoming a lot of things we didn't know. The Rainforestation tour is a must do, Chris our Duck driver was a fountain of knowledge and the Pamigirri dance was fabulous and a lot of fun

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
Would recommend. You cover a lot in one day which makes it worth it!

Despite how hot it was (February 2020), we had an amazing time! Everything was so well planned, and had an itinerary to go with it. The bus driver was so helpful and provided instructions on how everything would work. We paid for the butterfly exhibit separately and we were glad we went to it, so we probably should have bought the package that included that. Not sure if it is always like this, but we had a smaller groups so all the shows, and tours felt more like private tours which was great. Staff was so friendly. BBQ lunch was great.
At the Rainforest Station and the skyrail

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 & is fun. Make sure you get off at the 2 stations to look at the views.
Don’t miss this one!

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.
So much fun! Great learning experience!

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.
