Overall a wonderful tour and great Guide; wanted more Kuranda time.

Given how much there was to see and do in Kuranda itself, the less than 70 minutes was unsatisfactory and the Palm Cove stop could be skipped entirely and that time spent well for up to 2 hours in Kuranda. We raced through Butterflies, birds and animals exhibits in the wild, missed see the village itself and its aboriginal culture entirely. However, we loved the train and tram rides and their stops with history, nature and cultural information!
