Kuranda and sky rail

Cruising from Sydney, stopping at Yorkey's Knob. Have done some research and would like to do the Kuranda (train) and sky rail and get back to ship in plenty of time, is this possible to do independantly or would it be best to go on one of the ships organised trips.

Compare prices, from my experience cruise ships generally highly inflated prices on the tours offered in port.....

It's possible to book a train/Skyrail combo for Kuranda online at the Skyrail website:http://www.skyrail.com.au/tours/skyrail-kuranda-rail

They offer transfers from the Yorkeys Knob Boating Club, which I assume is near where the cruise ship docks.

When you book online, you can see what times are available for the train and the Skyrail and if it will work with the time constraints that your ship is in port. I am sure that booking this yourself will be much less than what's offered by the cruise ship. The only advantage to the ship's tour is that if the times are tight, the ship always waits for the ships' excursions to return.

I have done a train/Skyrail combo on my own and it worked fine, but I wasn't on a cruise ship, so I wasn't so concerned with timing.
