Visit the fascinating Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, which has been built in a spectacular rainforest setting. Discover this ancient culture through bush food lessons, didgeridoo demonstrations and the famous Tjapukai Dance. A short distance away is the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. This will take you directly above the canopy of the Barron Gorge National Park. En route to Kuranda, there are 2 stations where you can enjoy a walk through the rainforest and observe its beauty from spectacular lookouts. On arrival there is free time to explore the ‘village in the rainforest’, including the Heritage Markets. Later, board the Kuranda Scenic Rail for a historic journey travelling through some of the oldest rainforest in the world. Your journey winds through man-made tunnels, across bridges and around curves to arrive at its final destination, Freshwater Station. Return to Cairns in the late afternoon.
