I can understand why this is one of the most popular attractions in Cairns. The train trip up was excellent with stunning views and excellent commentary and Skyrail down also offered stunning views and great scenic walks. Travstar made the booking and transfers a breeze.

It was worth the experience

Our driver was absolutely wonderful. He was friendly, prompt, gave us tons of good info. A big thank you to our driver and I really wished I had remembered to get Australian dollars prior to the tour so I could have tipped him!

The train ride up was a little hot and squishy, but definitely a great view as long as you get the window seat. The skyrail back was also stunning, but we would have loved the option the upgrade to the glass bottom cable car.
