Kuranda is a picturesque little village hidden in the rainforest of Tropical North Queensland and is accessible on a daily basis by Queensland Rail's 'Kuranda Heritage Train' and 'Skyrail.'. Kuranda Village is famous for arts & crafts and indigenous artefacts and the excellent attractions  and the Aviary, to name but a few. The original Kuranda markets are held Wednesdays, Thursdays, Friday and Sunday. The Kuranda Heritage markets are open daily.

The Queensland Rail 'Heritage Train' journey takes 1 ½ to complete and has full commentary on the history of the region and the railway with a souvenir booklet included. The train route winds along the Kuranda Range and takes in the spectacular scenery of The Barron Falls.

By the Skyrail  you will be carried over and through of the rainforest canopy with superb views and sights that can only be imagined. The Skyrail journey takes approximately 1 12/2 hours from top to bottom and includes two stops, Red Peak Station and Barron Falls Station, where friendly Skyrail Staff will help you disembark your Gondola to enjoy the spectacular and scenic Rainforest Boardwalks, Rainforest Touch Tables and CSIRO Rainforest Interpretive Displays.

Another attraction which we could visit on tour is Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Located within walking distance of Skyrail’s Smithfield Terminal, Tjapukai combines dance, history and legends to create a dynamic interpretation of 40,000 years of culture. Tjpaukai is filled with interactive experiences to give you an authentic insight into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

You get to sample, in UNLIMITED quantities, up to 21 Gourmet Coffees, 4 Local Plantation Teas, 12 Handcrafted Chocolates, and 3 Exclusive Coffee Works Liqueurs!

CRATER LAKES We head to the Crater Lakes. These craters were formed when hot molten rock from now dormant volcanoes came into contact with groundwater. The build-up of steam blasted the central cores from the volcanoes, and over time the spectacular craters have filled with fresh rainwater. The best known botanical features of Lake Barrine are the twin rough-barked Kauri Pines. These 50 metre high giants are estimated to be about 1,000 years old and are considered one of the earliest known species of rainforest tree. Lunch will be served in the teahouse overlooking the lake. If you are brave enough to enter the cool (+24 all year round) mountain waters of Lake Eacham , then it's now time for a swim. Another crater lake, Eacham is a clear blue lake surrounded by cool rainforest.
