From the traditional appeal of the famous Kuranda Markets to the cool sophistication of roadside cafes and restaurants, Kuranda has something to suit everybody.

Or visit the Rainforest Interpretation Centre. Complimentary guided boardwalk tours are offered throughout the day at Red Peak Station.

We did the Kuranda Scenic Rail, Rainforestation and Skyrail Tour last weekend. Great door to door service and your itinerary and tickets are getting pre-issued which means no queuing to get them and more time to explore. The experience itself was fantastic and we enjoyed every minute. Absolutely recommended! Thank you!

While up in Cairns i went traveling with Down Under Tours and I chose to do the Kuranda Scenic Rail/Skyrail and Hartley's Crocodile Park adventure. I was picked up from the hotel and straight away given my itinerary. The Kuranda Scenic rail and Skyrail is a once in a life time experience it was so good that I booked with Down Under Tours as this took away the stress of getting tickets on the day for each activity. In the itinerary it also gave a full detailed timeline of what to see and do at Hartley's Crocodile Park, which made the afternoon enjoyable not having to plan a single thing. Overall I would highly recommend Down Under Tours, special thanks to Ian and Rob the bus drivers who were so informative and gave amazing local knowledge along the way.
