A fantastic day out at Koranda. A must for your visit to this region.

Wow the sky rail is absolutely amazing. It is 7.5 kilometres long and so very high up above the trees. A wonderful experience. We did not know at time of booking about the gold class option for the train, but we are told it is very worthwhile. Kuranda is quite a large suburb with lots of restaurants, there are two markets which go on and on and have a good variety of items. The Butterfly and Bird parks are quite good. Also there are gardens and Koalas to see. A fantastic day out.

GBR pontoon reef trip with diving, snorkelling, semi sub, viewing platform.

Great trip, dive, semi sub and viewing platform was the best. Didn’t get to have lunch due to lack of time doing activities when finished. Dive instructor was very good and just got a bit dizzy doing the intro dive test. The pontoon facility makes this day trip so cool and can’t wait to do it again. Well done to staff helping the people feeding seagulls and l hope the mother-in-law will not make me pay for this for too long, lol.
