Hit the rails, the rainforest, the sky and the reef in an action-packed day trip from Cairns! You'll take the Kuranda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway between Carins and Kuranda, soar over the Great Barrier Reef on a helicopter tour, take a lunchtime cruise on the reef, then spend the afternoon swimming or snorkeling before cruising back to Cairns. What a rewarding day out!
Have your camera ready aboard the Kuranda Scenic Railway to take photographs as the train winds its way around Horseshoe Bend and past Stoney Creek Falls and Barron Falls. You will witness the World Heritage Rainforest with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. Make sure to have your camera ready as you glide over the rainforest canopy and glimpse tantalizing views of Cairns' beautiful coastline.
From lush tropical rainforest it's on to the blue expanse of the Great Barrier Reef and your spectacular thirty-minute helicopter flight to the Outer Reef. From the heli pontoon at Hastings Reef, you will be transferred to a high-speed vessel to enjoy a delicious tropical lunch.
After lunch you will have more than two hours to snorkel and swim. If you prefer not to get wet, you can take an informative semi-submersible boat tour to see and learn about the delicate coral reef ecosystem (if time permits). Then it's time to relax and enjoy the live entertainment on-board this luxury vessel as you sail back to Cairns at the end of a packed, fulfilling day.
