lovely day trip up the kurunda

Got picked up from my accommodation right on time. We Skyrailed up to kurunda, spent the day in kurunda and took the rain back down right into centre of cairns. Very good trip. Thoroughly enjoyed few hours in kurunda.

Fantastic from start to finish

The whole experience was amazing, from meeting the guide to wandering around on our own. It was all planned and we didn’t have to worry about a thing

Great experience- Must see!

From the beginning to the end, it was well organised with punctual pick up, good communication and friendly service. The sky rail was fantastic and it felt very safe, I do recommend for those that get motion sick to take half a tablet! We chose the Skyrail up to Kuranda & train trip back, & it was an excellent choice! Highly recommend Bookme.

Rainforest

A dear friend of mine said to me 13 years ago, this was one of the best adventure trips he had done. I am so glad I have now tick this beautiful adventure off my list. The day start off with rain but as I got on the Skyrail the day broke and sun shine over the coast. As I go higher I disappeared in the mist. The village was amazing and friendly. The train trip back was just as beautiful as Skyrail. This is a must do.. do it now not when I get around to it. Thank you Cairns
