We drove up to the Barron Falls and stopped by on the way back in Kuranda for lunch. For someone who hates souvenir and tourist fooling places, Kuranda is a true nightmare. Apart from the fact that its a village in the rainforest, I did...More

The train takes a long time to get to or from Kuranda and the audio explanation makes the lack of views bearable. We took the Skyrail up to the Kuranda village which was faster and provided some great views of the rain forest

This was a great adventure taking the Coach up to Kuranda and then taking the Skyrail. The coach gave a lot of history about the train and the town. Beautiful scenery from the coach and the Skyrail.

It's for the bus between the railway station and the skyrail depot where your car is. It's a fair distance away.

We did Skyrail up and train down which I think is the most popular combination. Skyrail is one way not to miss.

I would suggest you check for tours to the Daintree Rainforest. It isn't far from Cairns, so you should be able to find one that suits the limited time you will have in the area.
