DAY 1 - Kuranda Village, Kuranda Skyrail 

Your day starts with a coach transfer from your accommodation to Smithfield, where you'll board the Kuranda Skyrail. The Skyrail takes approximately one and a half hours on its journey above the rainforest canopy to Kuranda. In Kuranda Village you'll have ample time to see the sights or visit the world famous Kuranda Markets. After a Skyrail down you'll be dropped back to your accommodation.



Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Cairns Australia, is a world first in environmental tourism taking you on an amazing experience over Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest.

The Skyrail experience, spanning 7.5kms over pristine rainforest, allows you to explore the wonders of an ancient tropical rainforest and learn about one of the most botanically fascinating and diverse areas on earth.

Gliding just metres above the rainforest canopy in comfortable six-person gondola cabins, the Skyrail journey immerses you in an intimate rainforest experience where you’ll see, hear, smell and become part of the tropical rainforest environment.

Kuranda Scenic Railway

Unfortunately this attraction is unavailable until at least 31/03/24. As soon as it's back up and running it'll be included once again.

Kuranda Village

Kuranda has come a long way from its initial origins as a centre for those choosing an alternative lifestyle in the late 60’s. Historic Buildings from the villages past now house a variety of upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars. It is still laid back, but with a style and sophistication that sets it apart from other Cairns Highlands Venues and Attractions.

Kuranda’s shops and markets with their exotically handcrafted goods, Aboriginal artifacts, restaurants and coffee shops make Kuranda a well known day destination. Kuranda has many varied lunch options (own cost).



Kuranda Skyrail - Rainforestation option


Koala & Wildlife Park

Join a guided tour on our covered boardwalks providing excellent viewing of native Australian animals, including crocodiles, wombats, dingoes, snakes, lizards, frogs, and the cassowary. Handfeed kangaroos and wallabies, observe the tiger quoll, or have your photo taken cuddling a cute koala, or holding a small crocodile (optional extra).

Army Duck Rainforest Tours

Experience the tropical rainforest from a totally unique perspective – aboard an amphibious World War II Army Duck. See fascinating plants and wildlife as you pass by, before splashing into the lake for a cruise. With propeller engaged, your Army Duck cruises up to the water’s edge whilst turtles, fish and eels swim up close.

Pamigirri Aboriginal Experience

Learn about aboriginal culture with this interactive experience. Watch a traditional dance performance depicting animals, food gathering, and hunting. On the guided Dreamtime Walk you’ll try your hand at boomerang throwing, and observe spear-throwing and didgeridoo playing. At the Cultural Centre, you can also purchase authentic artworks.

BBQ Lunch

Enjoy a tropical buffet style BBQ lunch at Rainforestation 



DAY 2 - Green Island and Great Barrier Reef Pontoon


Your Great Barrier Reef Adventure starts with a fast catamaran cruise to Green Island. You can try snorkelling, relax on the beach or explore the island ride in your 2 hour stay. After a short cruise you'll arrive at the outer reef Pontoon for lunch, your semi sub ride and more snorkelling. This tour is great for everyone – as there is something for everyone – combines 2 reef tours in one day  - half the day at Green Island and half the day at an outer reef pontoon. Includes semi submarine, underwater observatory, plus additional options such as scenic heli flights, seawalker (helmet diving) and scuba doo (underwater motorbike) and scuba diving. Better snorkling from the pontoon (outer reef) than from green island. Bigger boat – good for people who get seasick. Great for families with young children (as they will love the island and they have space to move around on the pontoon)/ also great for those with elderly family members and families with swimmers and non swimmers as everyone will be happy (plenty of activities for non swimmers)! A good all-rounder.

Coach transfers are not included in this day as most Cairns accommodation is close to the Marina, but they can be arranged if you like.


Green Island

Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old coral cay located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park – a premier world heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Just 27km from the hub of Tropical North Queensland, Cairns, Green Island is a 45 minute journey across the Coral Sea with Great Adventures’ high speed catamarans. With its unique reef and rainforest environment, this beautiful island provides the one-stop tropical experience.

Green Island is the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest growing on it! It is home to 126 native plant species, colourful birdlife, surrounded by magnificent coral gardens and is some 15 hectares (approx 37 acres) in size.

Revel in an array of activities or relax and let your day unfold in this tropical paradise. Stroll through magical rainforest, laze on the white coral sands, swim, dive or snorkel amongst an amazing display of tropical fish and coral gardens, or enjoy the well appointed day visitor facilities, including Green Island Resort's award winning Emeralds Restaurant.


Great Barrier Reef Pontoon

The beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is yours to experience when you cruise to our mulit-level reef activity platform. Situated on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef, our spacious platform features undercover seating and tables to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, full bar facilities, a swimming enclosure for children, change rooms with freshwater showers, sundeck, and scuba diving facilities with a semi-submerged platform. You will be able to snorkel and dive amongst some of the most spectacular coral gardens and marine life diversity on the Great Barrier Reef.

Or if you choose to stay dry, you can still embrace the natural wonderland below in our underwater observatory and spacious, air-conditioned semi-submersible vessel!
