Beginning early, you will be transferred to the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, the first part of your adventure in beautiful Cairns. You are supplied with your tickets for both the cableway and the scenic rail, so there's no waiting in lines! The Skyrail takes you over the rainforest, offering picturesque views of the expansive green vegetation in this beautiful, tropical area. There's two stops along the way, at Red Peak and Barron Falls stations, both with spectacular lookouts, and the ability to enjoy wandering through the rainforest.

The final stop is Kuranda Village, situated in the rainforest, and providing a unique setting for your mini stop over. Spend 3 hours exploring this small village; perhaps with a visit to Birdworld, the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, Kuranda Koala Gardens, or the Heritage Markets if you want to shop for arts and crafts. You'll be provided with a map and booklet full of information and coupons for the attractions so you'll definitely find something to do.

When it's home time, you'll head back to Cairns onboard the Scenic Railway and journey through the rainforest once again; this time travelling through hand-hewn tunnels, over bridges and around never-ending curves on board the train. Experience more amazing views over Barron River Delta and marvel at the remarkable engineering of this railway up high. Once at Freshwater Station, the awaiting coach will transfer you back to your hotel.
