Kuranda and Cairns Tours in a Day

TOUR INCLUDES – Transfer from your Port Douglas Accommodation, Cairns City or the Airport

Marvel at the panoramic views of Cairns and the Coral Sea as you ascend the mountains over the rainforest canopy on Skyrail to Kuranda.

Spend free time in the quaint village of Kuranda visiting the famous markets. Return to Cairns Central on the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway taking time to stop and experience the spectacular Barron River Falls.

From Cairns Central you can then be transferred back to Port Douglas after a brief wander around the shops or be transferred to Cairns Esplanade for a longer period of free time enjoying refreshments at one of the many outdoor restaurants, bars and cafes or strolling along the park-side seafront boardwalk while admiring the harbourlights.

Your holiday time is valuable, if you combine a day trip to Kuranda and Cairns rather than a day for each, you can save up to $50 per person on transfers. Krystal Transport offers the most flexible day tours which allows you to choose how much free time you spend in Kuranda and Cairns.
