The Tour

Kuranda Village is a quaint little township in the rainforest, famous for arts and crafts and indigenous artefacts and the excellent attractions of the Butterfly Sanctuary, Koala Gardens and Rainforestation. The Original Kuranda Markets and Heritage Markets are open daily.

The best value for money is the Kuranda Train and Skyrail Budget Tour. This tour package includes return Cairns City hotel / accommodation transfers with your choice of Scenic Train departure times; departing at 8.50am or 9.50 am from Cairns Daily - with a choice of Skyrail departure / return times from Kuranda Village back into Cairns, departing at 1.45am and 2.45pm respectively. Participants can choose to book the Train & Skyrail times in any order:

The Kuranda Scenic Train will take just over 1 & 1/2 hours from boarding in Cairns at Freshwater Heritage Statrion until arriving and disembarking in at the Kuranda Station in Kuranda Village. The 8.50am Train departure time will see passengers arrive into Kuranda Village at approximately 10.20am and the 9.50am Train departure will see passengers arrive into Kuranda Village at approximately 11.20am. 

Returning from Kuranda Village on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, the trip down from Kuranda Village to the Skyrail's disembarkation point at Caravonica Skyrail Station (15 minutes drive south, back into Cairns ) will take approximately 90 minutes along the route. This includes plenty of free time for passengers to enjoy two stops at the Skyrail Rainforest Mid-Stations / Boardwalks on the way down. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway staff are positioned at each of the Rainforest Stations to help guests disembark and reboard the Gondolas along the way, so getting off at each stop to have a look at the board walks is easy and well coordinated. 

Our budget package allows participants the option to purchase / pay the admission to do additional activities in the Village, as activities can be quite easily organized once you arrive into the village. The town is quite small and everything is very closely located in relation to the Train and Skyrail Terminals which are set side-by-side.

There’s the option to upgrade to Kuranda Scenic Rail’s ‘Gold Class’ Carriage with extra comfort and luxury, offering a special rail journey for the discerning traveller.
