Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda Railroad, Skyrail Excursions from Cairns

Jump to last reply

We're two couples, 60-ish, active, looking forward to exploring in and around the Cairns area in mid-November, and hoping to take several excursions.

The combination of the Kuranda Railroad and the SkyRail over the rainforest sound interesting. Are these worthwhile, or are there alternative tours of this type worth considering? Would anyone know if it is necessary to book these in advance, and if so, how far in advance?

None of us is a diver, but we all swim, and want to experience the Great Barrier Reef as well. Reef tours seem to be in abundance. While we continue to sort through the options we'd appreciate any advice from those who have been there. Also wondering how far in advance reservations need to be made.

Thanks for your input.
