Kuranda Excursion

Great trip with information provided by excellent operator, Michael. You can ride on Skyrail & return via locomotive train but for those who don't wish to board Skyrail Michael will drive you to Kuranda & you return to Cairns on the train. Michael then meets you at Freshwater station and drives you back to your accommodation.
