Cairns Skyrail Tour Excursion Reviews

Enjoy the tranquility of the rainforest as you soar above the treetops on a skyrail tour in Cairns.
Gold class up on the train.
Sail Date: March 2019
Gold class up on the train. Excellent, fun and comfortable. Nice nibbles and wine and not crowded. We only wanted a short time in Kuranda. Sky rail down but unfortunately had to wait nearly an hour for the bus back to Cairns.

Sail Date: February 2018
We did this independently and took a taxi from the port to the skyrail. This was much cheaper than using the ship tour and a wonderful tour.

The skyrail and train tour was very good. The tour guide was unclear on meeting times and locations for some of the stops - but otherwise a good tour.

Skyrail up to Kuranda. Time on our own to walk around this interesting village. Went to the butterfly sanctuary (small added fee). HINT: There is a wonderful Aboriginal art gallery/shop (not a trinket shop) but we only found it at the end of our walking around the town. Then a train ride back down -- booked the premiere ticket and were very glad. Lovely Victorian train cab with very comfortable individual bucket seats. Served beverage (wine, beer, etc) and cheese plate and dessert. Excellent views etc. If you can, sit on the left side of train. Read Less

We did the skyrail up to Kuranda village. Was so beautiful and an amazing experience. It's a definite must do when in cairns. We spent about 2 hours at the village which was so lovely. I bought a few things from the markets. Caught the bus back down. Our tour guide got the bus to do a huge scenic route and she told us a lot about cairns and showed us things as we were driving past. Very interesting and helpful as we had another day in cairns after that. Read Less

booked direct as cheaper than cruise line. Paid the extra $AUD12 for diamond gondola but wouldn't do that again, I didn't think it was worth it. Very hot day but enjoyed our time on the gondolas as well as getting off a couple of time en route for the bush walks. Would definitely recommend this, but just the normal gondolas! Read Less

As we had 2 days in Cairns I chose to book the Kuranda train/skyrail through one of the tourist bureaus and saved myself $35 from what the cruise line was charging.Kuranda has 3 small markets where you can buy a clothes,jewelry and nick knacks.There is a butterfly sanctuary, a dangerous / venomous animals park and bird park. With the sky rail there are a couple of places where you can get off and go for a short walk through the rain forest. Cairns being a launching pad for the Great Barrier Reef there are lots of ways of seeing the reef.From scenic flights - plane and helicopter $$$ - to small charter boats with scuba / snorkeling gear at the ready.Or you can go to one of the islands and snorkel around there.There's also white water rafting,paragliding,for the more adventurous.
