Take a journey deep into the rainforest to Kuranda Village and visit the fascinating Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park—all in a single day. This comprehensive tour combines breathtaking vistas by rail and gondola, with cultural encounters with the region's ancient rainforest people.

After a convenient pickup from your hotel, head to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. Here, you're met by an indigenous guide who escorts you through the park and introduces you to the customs and traditions of the Tjapukai. Learn about bush food and medicine, get some hands-on experience during a spear and boomerang-throwing session, and even score a few pointers on playing the didgeridoo.

Next, board a gondola on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for an epic aerial ride over the lush rainforest canopy as you make your way to Kuranda. Wander the streets of this picturesque village, peruse the market stalls, and admire the petite winged beauties at the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary.

When you're ready to depart, take a stunning railway journey from Kuranda, looking out the windows of the historic train as you pass cascading waterfalls and head through hand-hewn tunnels before arriving at Freshwater Station for the return back to your hotel.
