What people are saying about Kuranda

Was breathtakingly beautiful. We enjoyed the great barrier reef and compliments to the pilot who took the time for us. We saw turtles, whales, dolphins great to see. The coral reef was great to see. From there we had the Skyrail up which was amazing and what the rainforest looks like with the beautiful waterfalls. Went up to the market of Karunda and went down with the Karunda train. It was a combination trip and it was beautiful.

A brilliant ‘value for money’ day out !! Brad from GSL Aviation (reef flight) was a brilliant pilot who gave an amazing commentary over the reefs the transported us to the sky rail terminal. The Sky Rail was a Great adventure with 2 stops on the way to Kuranda. Lots to do, see and eat/drink whilst in Kuranda!! The train trip back to Cairns was very interesting and scenic (if you are sitting on the right side of the carriage)

Great service & knowledge from Brad. Amazing views and images. Great value and plenty of time in the air. A definite must do.

Beautiful experience. Value for money. One of the things that shouldnt be missed when in cairns.

Best crew. It was such an experience snorkeling and the instructors are just so friendly.
