The famous Kuranda Scenic Railway is a breathtaking journey comprising unsurpassed views of dense rainforest and steep ravines. Listen to the informative commentary as your journey takes you up to 1,076 feet above sea level. Relax as you pass through World Heritage protected tropical rainforest, tunnels, over bridges, past spectacular waterfalls and into the awesome Barron Gorge.
On arrival in Kuranda, join your coach for a brief drive through Kuranda Village to the unique Rainforestation Park. Experience the tropical rainforest from a different perspective – aboard an amphibious World War II Army Duck. During your unforgettable 20 minute rainforest tour, your knowledgeable Duck Captain will point out a variety of flora, fauna, bird and water life.
A visit to the nearby Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary will provide close-up, uninterrupted views from a series of elevated boardwalks of Australian wildlife including koalas, crocodiles, wombats, dingoes, kangaroos and wallabies.
On the return coach journey, enjoy scenic views of Cairns, the Coral Sea and Green Island.
