Wow, what a fun day. We took the old train, that was a treat in itself. The sky rail ride was so beautiful. We have wonderful photos to remind us of such a fun day. The little town has great resaurants and shops. We loved the spider and bat sanctuary too.

Definitely worth a visit and a ride on the cable cars. A trip up or down the mountain with a birds eye view of the rainforest and the entire city of Cairns was great. One of the highlights of our family holiday was this trip. Looking forward to coming back down the mountain on the train soon too. Doesn’t even matter about the weather for this trip. It’s worthwhile even in the rain.

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.
