DAY 1 - Kuranda Village, Kuranda Skyrail & Scenic Train


Your day starts with a coach transfer from your accommodation to Freshwater Train Station, where you'll board the Kuranda Scenic Railway. The train takes approximately one and a half hours to wind it's way through the rainforest to Kuranda. In Kuranda Village you'll have ample time to see the sights or visit the world famous Kuranda Markets. You'll return to Cairns via the spectacular Skyrail Cablecar. This is the preferred direction of travel. A coach will then transfer you back to your accommodation.




Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Cairns Australia, is a world first in environmental tourism taking you on an amazing experience over Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.

The Skyrail experience, spanning 7.5kms over pristine rainforest, allows you to explore the wonders of an ancient tropical rainforest and learn about one of the most botanically fascinating and diverse areas on earth.

Gliding just metres above the rainforest canopy in comfortable six-person gondola cabins, the Skyrail journey immerses you in an intimate rainforest experience where you’ll see, hear, smell and become part of the tropical rainforest environment.

Kuranda Scenic Railway

Our world famous railway experience is a must-do when visiting Cairns and Tropical North Queensland, Australia. You will discover the pioneering history of the tropical north from way back in the late 1800's, be astounded by a magnificent engineering feat and explore some of the great characters involved in the construction of this great railway. 

Through our website you can investigate your options for a fabulous Kuranda day tour, make a reservation, visit our Gift Shop for exclusive shopping, follow our journey through the wonderful rainforest of the Barron Gorge National Park, take a tour of the charming Freshwater & Kuranda Stations and enjoy the history of the Kuranda Scenic Railway. You can even view the plans of the original carriages still in service today.

Kuranda Village

Kuranda has come a long way from its initial origins as a centre for those choosing an alternative lifestyle in the late 60’s. Historic Buildings from the villages past now house a variety of upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars. It is still laid back, but with a style and sophistication that sets it apart from other Cairns Highlands Venues and Attractions.

Kuranda’s shops and markets with their exotically handcrafted goods, Aboriginal artifacts, restaurants and coffee shops make Kuranda a well known day destination. Kuranda has many varied lunch options (own cost).

DAY 2 - Green Island and Great Barrier Reef Pontoon


Your Great Barrier Reef Adventure starts with a fast catamaran cruise to Green Island. You can try snorkelling, relax on the beach or explore the island ride in your 2 hour stay. After a short cruise you'll arrive at the outer reef Pontoon for lunch, your semi sub ride and more snorkelling. This tour is great for everyone – as there is something for everyone – combines 2 reef tours in one day  - half the day at Green Island and half the day at an outer reef pontoon. Includes semi submarine, underwater observatory, plus additional options such as scenic heli flights, seawalker (helmet diving) and scuba doo (underwater motorbike) and scuba diving. Better snorkling from the pontoon (outer reef) than from green island. Bigger boat – good for people who get seasick. Great for families with young children (as they will love the island and they have space to move around on the pontoon)/ also great for those with elderly family members and families with swimmers and non swimmers as everyone will be happy (plenty of activities for non swimmers)! A good all-rounder.

Coach transfers are not included in this day as most Cairns accommodation is close to the Marina, but they can be arranged if you like.


Green Island

Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old coral cay located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park – a premier world heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Just 27km from the hub of Tropical North Queensland, Cairns, Green Island is a 45 minute journey across the Coral Sea with Great Adventures’ high speed catamarans. With its unique reef and rainforest environment, this beautiful island provides the one-stop tropical experience.

Green Island is the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest growing on it! It is home to 126 native plant species, colourful birdlife, surrounded by magnificent coral gardens and is some 15 hectares (approx 37 acres) in size.

Revel in an array of activities or relax and let your day unfold in this tropical paradise. Stroll through magical rainforest, laze on the white coral sands, swim, dive or snorkel amongst an amazing display of tropical fish and coral gardens, or enjoy the well appointed day visitor facilities, including Green Island Resort's award winning Emeralds Restaurant.


Great Barrier Reef Pontoon

The beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is yours to experience when you cruise to our mulit-level reef activity platform. Situated on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef, our spacious platform features undercover seating and tables to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, full bar facilities, a swimming enclosure for children, change rooms with freshwater showers, sundeck, and scuba diving facilities with a semi-submerged platform. You will be able to snorkel and dive amongst some of the most spectacular coral gardens and marine life diversity on the Great Barrier Reef.

Or if you choose to stay dry, you can still embrace the natural wonderland below in our underwater observatory and spacious, air-conditioned semi-submersible vessel!

DAY 3 - Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas & the Daintree Rainforest



After an early morning pickup from your accommodation, in a comfortable air conditioned bus, this tour makes it's way north along the scenic Captain Cook Highway. This section of road, between Cairns and Port Douglas, is considered one of Australia's most scenic tourist drives. The mornings first activity is a stop at beautiful Mossman Gorge. Surrounded by thick lush rainforest you can either have a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters or enjoy a easy short bush walk. Mossman Gorge is the traditional homeland of the Kuku Yulangi tribe. We now have an extended stay at Mossman Gorge - so you can experience it at your leisure.

We'll then enjoy an informative guided bushwalk at either the Marrdja or Jindalba Boardwalks. These easy walks will take you deep into this ancient forest. These trees haven't changed in millions of years. It's almost like stepping into a time capsule. The Maardja boardwalk also takes in a complex mangrove swamp ecosystem.

After the guided bushwalk it's time for a lunch break on stunning Cape Tribulation Beach, you can take advantage of the optional picnic lunch or bring your own (included until 1/4/16). This really is where the rainforest meets the sea! You'll have some free time to enjoy either the beach or do another easy bushwalk. After lunch we'll stop at the Daintree Ice Cream Company. If you like you can sample the unique tropical flavours with this tasty home made ice cream. Then it's back accross the breathtaking Alexandra Range to the ferry.

A crocodile and wildlife spotting cruise is next. This 1 hour cruise along the Daintree river will educate you about the marine and mangrove ecosystems as well as highlight the local wildlife. The Daintree River is home to the fearsome Estuarine or Saltwater Crocodile. You'll see crocodiles in their natural environment on most cruises.

On our way home we'll visit the picturesque tourist town of Port Douglas, the playground of the rich and famous. We'll arrive back in Cairns at about 6.30pm
