Departing the airport we travel north to the Skyrail – “the world’s most beautiful rainforest experience.” Your gondola trip takes you above the canopy of this world heritage national park with stops along the way to visit Red Peak. A walk down to the forest floor is recommended where boardwalks enable you to view the fern covered forest floor.
On arrival, enjoy the mountain village of Kuranda. Our guide will show you around this quaint township, where you can explore the local shops and markets. Perhaps take the opportunity to visit a local wildlife park (additional expense).
After enjoying a refreshing lunch, your guide will escort you to board the scenic railway. This is a spectacular journey comprising of unsurpassed views of World Heritage Listed rainforest, steep ravines and picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park.
Constructed between 1882 and 1891 it is considered an engineering feat of tremendous magnitude. Hundreds of men were employed to build the 15 hand- made tunnels and 37 bridges that stand as a monument to the pioneers of tropical North Queensland.
Your guide will meet you on arrival for transfer back to your accommodation early evening.
