Best day in Kuranda

Gold Class was a lovely treat and worth the extra on the train. The Skyrail return was amazing, especially as we had such beautiful clear weather.

Very good day

Very nice experience. The lady serving in our compartment in the train was very helpful and accomodating. Thanks for making it a memorable experience. Both the train and sky rail offered great views and we are sure to cherish this trip for years to come. Kuranda was also fantabulous with the things in offer at such a small place. The Frog restaurants food was delicious. The staff concerned with the transfers to the hotel was also very cordial and helped reschedule our trip back home. It was a nice gesture to take the trouble of looking up and arranging for a pick up as we were 30 mins before time. All in all a very good day with family.
