What you need to know

Spend your day exploring the gorgeous Kuranda region with this Kuranda Skyrail, Scenic Railway and Rainforestation Nature Park day tour. Departing from your accommodation with your Kuranda Boarding Pass, you'll travel en route to the base of the Kuranda Scenic Railway. With your Kuranda Boarding Pass listing your pre-allocated seats on the rail, you'll enjoy a scenic and relaxing winding journey up the Kuranda Range. This is one of Australia's most scenic rail routes as it passes through a number of beautiful natural and man-made sights including hand-hewn tunnels and bridges and cascading waterfalls and large gorges.

Upon reaching the village you're given ample time to explore it on your own. You can visit one of the many wildlife attractions, browse the shops and Heritage Markets that operate daily or simply relax at one of the cafés. The next stop on the agenda is the Rainforestation Nature Park, located a short distance from Kuranda and reached via shuttle. Set in 40 hectares of lush gardens and tropical rainforest, this is where a number of unique attractions awaits you. You'll board the unusual amphibious Army Duck for a different look at the rainforest and visit the Koala and Wildlife Park before the shuttle bus takes you back to Kuranda.

The day is concluded with a journey back down the range aboard the scenic Skyrail. This is an experience that takes you over the rainforest canopy with stops along the way allowing you to take a stroll or visit the CSIRO Interpretive Centre. On completion of Skyrail you'll be met by the tour hostess who will assist with your return transfer to your accommodation. Combining great attractions for one great price, book your Kuranda attraction package online today.
