Such a great ride for the family! We enjoyed the experience but it does take quite a bit of time. If you want to get out and explore at each stop and really make the most of it then allow half a day. We did a trip to the top and straight back down and it took a couple hours without stops. There are amazing views for the cable car and although you are incredibly high you feel safe at all times. We had our two kids in the cable car with us (5&4) and they loved it. Just pack some food and water and potentially some entertainment if the kids are young.

A very peaceful ride, the air was so fresh and fragrant! Loved seeing wild varieties of plants in my greenhouse. A garden and plant lover's delight! Make sure you stop at each point and stroll down the board walks. Shopping at the end of the rail is very touristy, lots of Asian junk shops... However the gift shops sponsoring the rails are very nice!

This is the most impressive and thrilling experience of rain forest. First we went by cable car and returned by train from Kuranda village. Enjoy the breath taking beauty down from the cable cars through glass windows. You will be spell bound by the beauty and the bikes from the cable cars. Enjoy the similar experience and history when traveling by train. One of the Must visit tourist attractions in Queens land.
