We booked the entire day through Skyrail, including pickup and drop-off at the hotel. The service was great. The train, to start, was not the best, but the butterfly and bird parks in Kuranda were great. The Koala Gardens was a disappointment compared to other experiences on this trip, and Rainforeststation was just too much to add into the day. On the weekend, there are vendors in Kuranda, but we didn't leave enough time to shop, so I'd skip Rainforestation and shop next time.

The ride back to "town" on the Skyrail was great! The view of the rain forest is spectacular, and make sure you get off at both stations and take the boardwalk to see Barron Falls and other breathtaking views. Make sure you save some film if you are only doing Skyrail on the way back, as you'll have great photo ops for postcard-like pictures.
