experiencing OZ together for 2024 Family fun 🤩 🌴

Hi to all We took the Skyrail up the mountain and it was fabulous. Train going back, I wish we hadn’t done. The train ride was hot and stuffy. Then most of us ended up with headaches from the screaming brakes all the way back down holding our ears.

I understand why Avatar was inspired with this forest

Great views from the cabins, total route is over 7 km. Well organised stops with a massive waterfall and a free guided walk. Lots to see and do in Kuranda village. Many places to eat there as well and interesting gifts. A must-do when you're in Cairns area.

Great experience to use Experience Oz, is really easy to use.

Booked the ride through Experience Oz , it is easy to use and lists all the activities for me to choose from. I organised multiple activities through the website and all done within a minute. It is a great experience to ride the cable rail, the staff is very friendly and helpful.
