For customers who have their own car yet still want to enjoy the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway as well as the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and want a flexible day, this is the combination for you. In the morning you will drive to Skyrail and park your car.  A shuttle bus will then transfer you to Freshwater Station for the Kuranda Scenic Train.  You will travel to Kuranda via the train and enjoy your pre selected free time to explore the village.  You then depart Kuranda via the Skyrail to come down.  The end point of the Skyrail journey finishes at the same place your car is parked.


1. Park at Skyrail Car park at 7.50 am for the 8.50 train departure morning transfer. Or at 09.10am for the 9.50am train morning transfer (it is free all day parking) and wait at the one bus shelter there. There are many buses that use this shelter, you don't need to approach them all, the driver will call your name. The shuttle bus will pick you up to take you to the Freshwater train station.


2. At Freshwater station the driver will complete your train check in and assist you to board on for the 8.50am or 9.50am train departure. You will enjoy 1.5 hours of amazingly beautiful rainforest scenery and great historic commentary from a heritage train carriage.

The only way to improve on this journey is to upgrade to the indulgent Gold Class carriage (at an additional charge and only on the 9.50am departure) where you share the journey with only about 20 other passengers, get much more comfortable seating, your own waiter, all you can eat finger food (sweet and savory), all you can drink bear, wine, soft drinks, tea, coffee and water. The best part is being queued for the pending photo opportunities around the corner.


3. Enjoy free time in Kuranda rainforest village. The village has three markets, plus a Butterfly Sanctuary, Bird world and Koala Gardens. There are many local arts and crafts, cafes and restaurants. The markets trade 7 days per week and they put on extravaganzas annually for Easter, Anzac Day, Kuranda Day, a Motorcycle Show and Christmas.  Free time can either be 2 hours or 3.5 hours subject to which Skyrail time you book.


4. Boarding the unique Skyrail Gondola - to make your way down from the top of the mountain to head back to base. The scenery is 360 degrees but if you choose the Diamond view gondola (at an additional charge) to view through the clear floor base or go ‘open air' in their Glider carriage with your own personal guide (at an additional charge).
There are two opportunities each 15 minutes approximately to disembark the gondola and walk through the rainforest at each viewing station. A personalized indigenous guided tour can be arranged with prior booking at either station (at an additional charge).

5. At the base of Skyrail you arrive to where you car is parked approximately 1.5 hours after you boarded. Although the actual journy is only 50 minutes we allow 1.5 hours for photos and viewing from each of the two Skyrail station.
