What people are saying about Kuranda

Wonderful day today. Firstly our pilot Brad from GSL Aviation (Cairns airport) was informative, professional, attentive & knowledgeable as we flew above the reef. Just 6 in the plane + pilot. Everyone had a window seat. A great experience we would recommend to everyone. 10/10 Brad. Then we went to Smithfield to catch the Skyrail up to Kuranda, a really good way to travel up the mountain with the rainforest below. Then at Kuranda we took a 45 minute boat ride on the Barron River (Kuranda Riverboat Tours) and our guide Lex was very knowledgeable in pointing out fresh water crocs, tortoises, fish & a cassowary, all up close & personal. 10/10 Lex. Then lunch at the Kuranda Pub (nice hamburger) and the train trip down the mountain. The trainline is a marvellous historical engineering endeavour & should be experienced.

We had a great day flying out and exploring cairns and island around.Such a wonderful way to start the day. Than we continue to sky rail it amazing view over the rain forest. We enjoy lunch in Kuranda taking the scenic train ride back to Cairns. Lovely day until it’s started raining. Brand was very friendly and super helpful.

Great service & knowledge from Brad. Amazing views and images. Great value and plenty of time in the air. A definite must do.

Beautiful experience. Value for money. One of the things that shouldnt be missed when in cairns.

Best crew. It was such an experience snorkeling and the instructors are just so friendly.
