  • Nice trip with family. Should try to see this when in Cairns. we enjoyed every minute here. You can drive or use the scenic rail/skyrail.

  • Absolute must do when visiting Cairns. Catch the train up and the sky rail back. Gorgeous scenery, although wet season would make the falls something spectacular, it was still beautiful. My tip - pay the extra for the diamond fare and get the glass bottom gondola. Not only does it give views over the canopy, but also you generally travel without others sharing your cabin and you skip the queues 😉👌
  • Fantastic place to see. We were lucky that we saw it after 2 days of rain. Very relaxing and peaceful place. If you don’t see it with the skyrail or train you can drive there easily and take the short walking trail.
