Gentle river cruise, very pleasant experience with the opportunity to glimpse a freshwater crocodile
We had intended to go on the Army Duck tour but as it was full we decided to try the riverboat cruise which was a gentle sail along the Barron River and the added bonus of spotting a freshwater crocodile. All in all a nice way to end the day at Kuranda before catching the train back.
I learnt a lot of information on the tour and the scenery was beautiful
Absolutely fantastic! The man presenting the tour was funny and well-informed. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will rebook again. The scenery was absolutely beautiful as well. My daughter enjoyed looking at the turtles, ducks and fish.
Totally worth it! Really funny tour guide and saw a lot!
The tour guide was really funny, very informative and we saw a lot of animals! We saw turtles, crocs and some other rare animals. Probably my best experience in Kuranda. Totally recommend. The tour guide engages a lot with the people as well. Nice view as well.
