Once in Kuranda, there are several pleasant ways to spend the next few hours, including perusing the markets, visiting the butterfly sanctuary or exploring the Koala Gardens. We will then make our way back to Cairns on the unique Kuranda Scenic Railway. Passing over 40 bridges and through 15 tunnels, along one narrow part the track even has to cling to the rock face: a railway journey to remember.
Breakfast included

Our tour will then bring us to Hyde Park, Parliament House and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This unique ‘chair’ and landmark is in fact an exposed sandstone rock, cut into a bench shape in 1810 by convicts as a gift to Governor Macquarie’s wife.

We were taken to all the places we wanted to see, accommodated in first class hotels, flew from a town to another without a hitch, had a sight-seeing tour in every city and were always accompanied by James, our Australian guide who we couldn't praise enough.
Dr Tawfik, Wonders of Australia
The organisation and skill devoted to making this special was exceptional. From the tour managers down to the coach drivers and the choice of hotels there is really nothing I could fault. One big, perfect adventure from start to finish. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Waters, Wonders of Australia
Have just returned from Australia with this excellent company. When you phone the company you nearly always speak to the same knowledgeable person, nothing was too much trouble. The trip was well planned and all the hotels they used excellent.
