Our guide to Kuranda, Skyrail & Scenic Rail

Make your visit to Kuranda a memorable one from door to door. On arrival at Freshwater Station, you are able to avoid the ticketing lines as you are already checked in. Perhaps purchase a light breakfast )own expense) or explore the souvenir shop and museum.
