We are planning a trip to Kuranda and have read mixed reviews about that train ride. Numerous reviews complain about the train being packed, hot , uncomfortable benches and not everyone can get a seat with a view.
Another comment referred to the screeching wheels of the train on the way down, so if you take the train, they are saying take it up. Apparently on the way down you have the train using it's brakes more often.
The thought of sitting in a packed hot train is not my idea of fun, nor do I want to spend the extra for gold class.
Quite a few reviews have suggested we scrap the train and go both ways by skyrail
Any feedback from folks that have experienced the sky rail and the train would be appreciated.
