Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise

Experience the beautiful Kuranda Village and Rainforest! Take the train up to Kuranda. Return on the Skyrail, then finish the day with a stunning Sunset Dinner Cruise. So, sit back and relax on the Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise package.

Kuranda Rainforest Tour – AM

The journey to Kuranda is an exciting one.  Located just 25 km northwest of Cairns in Far North Queensland. This scenic mountain village is surrounded by UNESCO listed Wet Tropics Rainforest. So what better way to start your Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise package!

While you travel by the scenic rail you will learn about the pioneering history of the tropical north.

During the 90 minute journey, climb over 40 small bridges and through many dark tunnels while winding your way from Cairns to Kuranda.

You will be in awe of the excellent views of the world listed rainforest, steep ravines and not to mention picturesque waterfalls within the Barron Gorge National Park.

Whilst Kuranda Scenic Rail gives visitors an amazing view of the rainforest at ground level, Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides an extraordinary birds-eye-view of the rainforest. Take in the view while it soars silently only meters above the rainforest canopy.

You’ll glide just metres above the rainforest before descending through the canopy layers and deep into the heart of the rainforest. At Skyrail’s two mid-stations you can hop off and enjoy a relaxing walk through the rainforest along the boardwalk.

Cairns Dinner Cruise – PM

After all that exploring, The Cairns Dinner Cruise is the ideal way to wind down at the end of the day. So, sit back and relax and enjoy an evening of calm water cruising on Trinity Inlet. Cruise alongside the city lights and tropical mangroves. As soon as the sun begins to set, let the Far North Queensland sunset mesmerize you.

Every night begins with a glass of wine, after all, good dinner cruises should! With your glass full, head onto the front deck to admire the view. Watch as the sky transitions through a variety of colours. Finally, look up to see the blanket of stars that stretch across the sky.

Find yourself on a journey deep into the rivers of the Trinity Inlet, before heading out into the  Broadwater. Take in glittering city lights as you cruise alongside the waterfront of Cairns.

So, imagine yourself onboard. Listen to calm waters gently lapping the boat. Feel the gentle breezes and enjoy the mild weather. Especially as the night is yours to enjoy. With either a delicious buffet or set menu to choose from. It features some of the region’s best produce, not to mention fresh seafood.

After all, this is the ultimate in waterside dining. It certainly is the perfect end to the Kuranda Rainforest and Dinner Cruise package!
