Kuranda Train / Skyrail


Thinking of riding the train / skyrail on December 24th, would it be advisable to book on line or should I take a chance and purchase tickets when I arrive in Cairns? Cost is 97 Au per adult and 3.85 booking fee.

Where in Cairns do we go to catch the train to Kuranda? Am thinking of finding accommodations by the Esplanade area.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

School Holidays. So I would suggest book now.

From The Esplanade in Cairns you can walk to the railway station, which is located near Cairns Central shopping centre, about 2 blocks, and about 10 minutes.

Although the Esplanade is quite long, so it may take you a little longer if you are staying at the northern end of the Esplanade.

Your accommodation will be able to give you direction, and a free map of Cairns and district.
