Kuranda Train, Skyrail and Hartley’s Crocodile Adventure

Kuranda Train, Skyrail and Hartley’s Crocodile Adventure 2 day tour package delivers a taste of True Far North Queensland.

Read on to discover what these two fantastic tours have to offer!

Day 1 – Kuranda Train and Skyrail

Combining the Scenic Train journey with the world famous Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is a great way to experience this World Heritage listed tropical rainforest.

First, you will travel by the scenic train and learn about the pioneering history of  Tropical North Queensland. During the 90 minute journey, you will climb over 40 small bridges and through many dark tunnels while winding your way from Cairns to Kuranda.

You will be in awe of the excellent views of the rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park.

After your 90 minute train journey, you will arrive at Kuranda, a village in the rainforest.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll through this quaint village, shop at the heritage markets or perhaps visit one of the wildlife parks in the area.

Finally, after a few hours enjoying what Kuranda has to offer, you will board the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.

Skyrail provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest as it glides only meters above the rainforest canopy.

Stretching 7.5 km through the tropical Rainforests of North Queensland, Skyrail provides people with a unique opportunity, to see and experience the rainforest in a safe and environmentally friendly way. Enjoy a stop at Skyrail’s two mid-stations where you can enjoy Ranger guided boardwalk tours.


As at July 2020, Skyrail is currently not operating.  This tour itinerary has changed, and you will now be transferred from Kuranda at 3.00 pm by air-conditioned coach to your Cairns accommodation.
