A great option is the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to Kuranda, be amazed as you travel over and through World Heritage rainforest, explore quaint Kuranda village and later board the Kuranda Scenic Rail for this historic rail journey.

Your visit provides a contribution to the ongoing maintenance of the enchanting garden. Explore Sydney's inner west and enjoy a lunch with the locals at the pub.
