1 thing that I didn’t like is the seat management on train. I got 3 and other family 5 , you managed them sat all the windows side that my family in the middle and we can’t see the view on beautiful side at all. You should put 1 person on the other side and 5 people already sat the window seat.

Skyrail was amazing. Kuranda is lovely, if a bit too laid back in some stores customer service wise. I would recommend upgrading to Diamond service to ensure you get a window seat on the train, as we were disappointed on the train ride home, with other people's camera lenses blocking our view of the beautiful scenery on the way back.

An amazing day! Would have loved another hour in Kuranda but still great. Take your time on the skyrail and enjoy the breathtaking views and the AR app on your phone. The butterfly garden is for sure worth adding to your trip but we found the Duck Tour to be not worth the time as you just circle around a small lagoon. I definitely recommned upgrading the rail pass to the Gold Class on the train. The rail staff were awesome!
