Kuranda Village, Scenic Train, Skyrail and Croc Adventures

Kuranda Village, Scenic Rail and Skyrail

Chill out in the quaint mountain village Kuranda and discover the natural beauty of Far North Queensland’s world heritage listed rainforest. Start the day on the old school railway, traveling 328 metres above sea level from Cairns to Kuranda through dense tropical rainforest. Zen out and enjoy the relaxed hippy vibe in Kuranda with free time to explore the town known for its souvenirs, arts and crafts and indigenous artifacts – a unique gift for friends and family left behind at home. Go hug a koala or meet some of the other colourful, unusual and cuddly animals at the local attractions on offer, including the Butterfly Sanctuary, Koala Gardens, Birdworld and the Aviary – discount entry for Tropical Horizon’s passengers. Around midday, board the Skyrail. Make sure the camera batteries are charged and immerse all senses, gliding above the tropical rainforest canopy. Catch views of the greater Cairns region and impressive Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef – a great instagram opportunity!

Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures Tour

Ready to meet some of Australia’s most iconic and fascinating wildlife? Spend the day with the apex predator, the crocodile. Hartley’s is home to around 3000 crocs and is the best place to see the largest living reptile in the Far North. Take a cruise on the lagoon and explore the natural habitat of the saltwater croc, where croc sightings are absolutely guaranteed. 19 crocs ranging in size from 2.5-5 metres in length call the tropical estuarine wetland’s home. Fantastic photo opportunities will be on offer to wow everyone on social media, as one of Hartley’s croc experts feeds the hungry salties from a specially constructed viewing vessel. Witness the true power and strength of the crocodile as experienced zookeepers demonstrate the dominant predator’s notorious hunting skills the death roll and head shake at the Crocodile Attack Show. Learn how Hartley’s helps contribute to the conservation of the protected species, which is vulnerable to extinction, at its crocodile farm. Had enough of crocs? Then, meet some of Australia’s other dangerous animals, at the Snake Show. Why not explore the rest of the eco-park and get up close and personal with its abundance of less-dangerous but equally mesmerising wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, lizards, turtles, waterbirds, emus and the spectacular cassowary.
