Our driver was good, and added to the experience with this commentary.
Our visit to Kuranda started with a disappointment, that the train was not running that day and we'd have to use SkyRail in both directions. Don't know if we missed much or not.
The SkyRail was fun, and be sure to take a look around at the stops on the way up. The small visitor center at the middle station was nice. I don't know if it will be there when you visit, but the largest spider I have ever seen has a big web overhead in the SkyRail station. An unplanned enhancement provided by nature.
Our second glitch was the weather. It poured, on and off, much of the afternoon. It is, after all, a rainforest. This put a damper on walking around the village of Kuranda, and also reduced visibility on the SkyRail return trip considerably.
The wildlife center has some nice animals. Of particular note are the Tasmanian devils; normally they are nocturnal and hard to get a good look at in the daytime, but here they has adjusted to daytime hours and were scampering about and very lively. Be sure to learn about Jack the Ripper, a huge crocodile with a past that gave him his name.
We also liked the army duck (amphibious vehicle) ride, and saw a gymbi-gymbi plant. Look, don't touch!
Down Under Tours provided good transportation and driver; Kuranda Rainforestation provided the rest, and it was worthwhile, despite the glitches we encountered.
