What you can expect

Enjoy a great day tour to Kuranda combining a scenic return journey and an adventurous crocodile experience at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. This tour picks you up from your accommodation in Cairns and you collect your Kuranda Boarding Pass offering discounted entry into a selection of the iconic Kuranda attractions as well as a detailed map including reference points to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible. Board the historic train at Freshwater Station and relax in your pre-booked preferential seating on the Kuranda Scenic Railway where you will begin your day tour to Kuranda. This historical train journey winds its way through the rainforests and past Barron Falls – enjoy the scenic wonders looking over Cairns. Once at Kuranda Rainforest Village there is a chance to explore, dine and shop for approximately one hour before boarding the next scenic part of your tour on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Here you can use your Kuranda Boarding Pass to avoid the ticketing lines at Skyrail and proceed directly to the boarding area at 11.30am. Enjoy Skyrail - the world's most beautiful rainforest experience. There are two stops en route to explore, including boardwalks and the CSIRO Interpretive Centre. A coach will be waiting at Caravonica Lakes to transfer you to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. This is the best place to see crocodiles in Tropical North Queensland. Highlights of the park include the Wetlands Cruise where guests will be able to experience the crocs being pole-fed up close as they lunge to grab their food, Crocodile Attack Show and Snake Show. At the end of the day, the tour will transfer you back to your accommodation in Cairns.

I loved everything that this tour had to offer. The only complaint was that there was not enough time to explore Kuranda.

Absolutely great experience - good value for money. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I loved everything that this tour had to offer. The only complaint was that there was not enough time to explore Kuranda village (probably just less than one hour)

Great ride with this old train and scenic views with the Skyrail - Hartley was also a special experience.

It is a good combo with three different, special experiences - well organised! The scenic railway and skyrail were great rides with scenic views over the rainforest and waterfalls, perfect also for children. Hartley is a big park with crocodile, koalas, kangaroos/wallabies etc. - the human-made lagoon is great for observing crocodiles.

Our experience was cut short as the train was delayed by 2 hours to get up to Kuranda. We did not have a chance to see or do anything as we had to travel back to the bottom quickly for our next tour.

Overall, the communication and what our options were under these circumstances were not great. We had to call often... The company did handle it quite well and kept us informed as much as possible but the train delay minimised our experience of Kuranda.
