This surprised me, I thought it would be a tourist trap but it is very well done. Make sure you download the app for a superb audio tour and the stop offs on the route add to the experience of the rain forest. If your in Cairns definitely worth a day of your itinerary.

My husband and I upgraded from economy to first class and I must say, the service from the staff and luxurious dinner menu is absolutely wonderful. Half way through our descent, the hostess came down the cabin with a bottle of my favorite wine. Splendid! The cable was also very smooth and there was barely any turbulence. Tremendous experience!
