Your Example Itinerary
UK to Cairns
On arrival to Cairns, pick up your hire car and drive to your centrally-located hotel. Kick start your holiday soaking up the lifestyle of the tropics – enjoy a swim in the huge esplanade lagoon, take a stroll around the museums and art galleries, and indulge on some of the freshest seafood Australia has to offer. Next day, it’s time to explore the beautiful surrounding rainforest on your inclusive Kuranda, Skyrail and Scenic Rail experience. Soar high above the rainforest canopy on the Skyrail – a fantastic cable car ride. Admire the majestic mountains cloaked in emerald as you glide up to the village of Kuranda. Located on top of the MacAlister Range, Kuranda is a picturesque village in the heart of the rainforest. You’ll have plenty of free time here to stroll around the famous heritage markets, enjoy spectacular bird watching and discover amazing street art at every corner. For your return journey to Cairns, board the original Kuranda Scenic Rail – a spectacular Journey of unsurpassed views of the rainforest, steep ravines and breathtaking waterfalls.
