Hi travstar team thank you for for oganising a great day to kuranda. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at my accommodation by a very helpful bus driver. The connections went very well. Up by the train and down by the skyrail. It would have been good to have had longer at kuranda as i had a ticket to explore three wildlife parks and i only saw two. My friend from scotland did not get a chance to get her photo taken with a koala as the 1.30 appointment was too late. I felt the time on the mountain was too rushed and i would have liked to be there for longer bye vivien.



Best way to view the rain forest

Very well organized outing. Driver was at the hotel early and gave us all the information we needed for the day regarding timing and tickets. Train trip was great and the Skyrail was a great experience even though I am not a fan of heights!! Driver gave us a great commentary on the way back to the hotel with a bit of local history and explanation of what we were seeing. Arrived back well within the suggested time and had a great day. Happy to recommend to others.
