Join Tropic Wings, the longest established coach operator in Cairns, for a full day adventure to Kuranda, located in the middle of World Heritage Rainforest.
Start your day with a trip on the Kuranda Scenic Railway, a relaxing journey winding up the mountain from Cairns to the village of Kuranda. The historic railroad rises from sea level to 328m and passes through ancient rainforest. Look out for waterfalls and the breathtaking Barron Gorge.
Upon arrival in Kuranda, enjoy a guided tour across land and water on the historic World War II amphibious Army Ducks at the award-winning Rainforestation Nature Park. Your experienced Army Duck Captains will help you identify and learn about the native animals and wildlife surrounding you, including snakes, fish, turtles and a range of birdlife. Your guide will also point out and explain the unique ferns, orchids, strangler figs and stinging trees that form the rainforest as you pass by.
Finish your day with a peaceful return to Cairns on the scenic Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, travelling in comfortable 6-person gondolas just metres above the rainforest canopy. The cableway spans 7.5km with two stops offering the opportunity to explore the rainforest at ground level, before arriving in Cairns.
