We took a Down Under t\our on a day trip to the mountain village of Karanda which we got to by the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, a wonderful trip over the forest with sights of waterfalls. Once we arrived in Karanda we had a cup of coffee, and then wandered round the village, having an interesting conversation with a man in... More

We had paid the extra and opted for the upgrade to Gold Class and as part of the package we were ushered through to a quaint seating area where we were... More

Well organised tour, amazing experience but be prepared for a long day. Comfortable bus with aircon which makes the trip so much better especially on really hot and humid days

We did a tour of Daintree Rain Forest with Down Under Tours and were very impressed. Our guide Daniel was most informative and interesting, the vehicle was great and we had a wonderful day, would definitely recommend the tour and especially the guide.

Booked our visit to Kuranda through Value Day Tours which pick you up at your hotel and transport you to the Cable Rail with light commentary along the 30 minute drive. They drop you off at the Rail and give you tickets for the rail and our return ticket on the scenic rail. They then picked us up at the... More

We enjoyed both days of tours with Down Under Tours. The first was Cape Tribulation and The Daintree Forest. It was well organized and very enjoyable but was overshadowed by the full day Kuranda tour which we loved. The first stop, Tjapukai was extremely interesting and fun. We got to try using native spears and boomerangs. The ride up to... More

Riding up in the sky rail left a lot to be desired but, out of fairness, I think this is one of those things that has more wow when there are actually waterfalls and blooming foliage in the rainforest! There was almost not a drop of water during our tour. The cabs them selves were very clean and the staff... More

Me and my wife went on this tour, which included a walk through Mossman Gorge, lunch at Silky Oakes Lodge, a river cruise and a short trip through port Douglas. The attractions were good, especially the walk through the gorge which was led by Skip, a local to the area. He was informative and passionate - really good! The issue... More
