Itinerary

Your Journey Begins

You’ll start your day with a pick-up in luxury coach from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation. The pick-up time all depends whether you’d like to start your day as early as 7am, or as late as 1.15pm. Keep in mind this will affect how much time you’re able to spend in Kuranda, which ranges from no time at all, to an hour, two, three, and so on, to the maximum amount of time of five hours.  

You’ll also be able to decide which of the iconic Cairns’ experiences you’d like to hop aboard for your journey to Kuranda: the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, or the Kuranda Scenic Railway.

You would have decided all this before boarding the coach, so for now sit back in your reclining, leather seat as your knowledgeable driver provides an overview of what you can expect from the day
